Ride London 2014

On Sunday 10th august we waved Ian across the finish line at The Mall completing his Ride London –Surrey 100. Despite the challenging weather conditions (see the rainy photo below!) which have been described as biblical (such severe wind and rain that the course was cut by 16 miles) we found the 2nd Prudential Ride London -Surrey 100 (or we should say 86!) a great success. Ian has raised £636 for Ability Bow (including Gift aid) Thanks so much Ian for your months of hard work training and fundraising!

A London Marathon Thank you

April saw this year’s Virgin London Marathon and what a great day it was. The weather was lovely for the spectators/supporters but a bit warm for the runners! Ability Bow had their usual spot at The Grapes in Narrow Street. Victoria was up early at the start on Blackheath. She spotted quite a few of our runners and was able to give them encouragement and remind them that we would be there to cheer them on at just over the half-way mark.
