Two One Broker runners who took part in the 2019 London Marathon in April have raised an incredible £2480 in donations. The money collected will be donated to the Papworth Trust, a disability charity based in East Anglia. The Papworth Trust was announced as One Broker’s 2019 Charity of the Year in early 2019.

Danny Hawkins, Senior Claims Technician at One Broker’s Norwich office, and Tess Minns, Claims Technician at One Broker Cambridge, completed the 26.2 mile course. The duo volunteered for the marathon, a goal they had both wanted to complete for several years.

Danny and Tess comment on their Marathon experience

Both Danny and Tess performed spectacularly during the marathon and certainly made all at One Broker very proud. In their own words, this is how they found the race:

Danny Hawkins, Senior Claims Technician, One Broker Norwich:

"The 2019 London Marathon!!! WHAT AN EXPERIENCE. It was one of the most amazing day of my life filled with excitement, highs and lows, fear and dread but finished with sense of amazing achievement and proudness. From the start to mile 26, the crowd were amazing, spurring you on shouting your name supplying you with as many Jelly Babies as you could eat. I met a Rhino called Vicky and a bear called Paddington along with all the other amazing runners on route all enjoying the amazing spectacle that is the LONDON MARATHON."

Tess Minns, Claims Technician, One Broker Cambridge

"It was the most fantastic day; the support from the marshals, spectators and fellow runners was amazing and the atmosphere around the course was like a huge party. I enjoyed every minute of it and I would do it all again in a heartbeat."
