Welbeck Group makes a marathon effort for charities
Nick Evans and Toby Walker from Welbeck Group run the marathon for charity.
- (1888PressRelease) April 20, 2011 - On 17 April, Nick Evans and Toby Walker from wealth management and financial services provider, Welbeck Group, will run the London Marathon in aid of the British Forces Foundation and The Stroke Association.
"It's my fourth London Marathon," said Nick Evans, Communications Director, who's running for the British Forces Foundation. "I believe it's important to give something back - and there are few more noble or topical causes than supporting our troops."
Toby Walker, a Partner at Welbeck Group, is raising money for a cause close to his heart: The Stroke Association. "My fiance's mum suffered a fatal stroke two years ago," said Toby. "The Stroke Association does so much great work, not just supporting stroke victims but raising awareness of the condition."
With the day fast approaching, Nick is thrilled with the support so far. "So many clients of Welbeck Group and their advisers have supported me," said Nick. "I can't wait to get in the race - it's such a fantastic event for the city."
Toby is equally excited about the run - and competing with Fi, his fiancÚ: "Last November, Fi beat me in the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon. So it's get-my-own-back time!"
