60 Marathons In 60 Days


9:35am 22nd November 2012

Ok here's a question for you ... What's the name of the famous poet born near Dorchester? It could be one of the brain teasers at a big quiz this weekend.

Katie Hensman from Charlton Down has organised the charity night in support of her local friend who at the ripe old age of 60, is running 60 marathons in as many days.

Both are raising for local charities and everyone is welcome to their quiz night.

Charities include Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance; The Wessex Autistic Society; In Support of Water Aid, Mosaic, The Prostate Cancer Charity and Breast Cancer Care.  

On Saturday night, Katie Hensman, whose part of the Mosaic charity, will be helping out in the fund raising by hosting a fun quiz at Herrison Hall Ballroom, Charlton Down, near Dorchester.

Food will be provided in the interval and you are encouraged to bring your own drinks.

Tickets cost £7.50 per person and if you're interested in going then you can book your place through Katie on 01258 837071 or you can email katie@mosaicfamilysupport.org.

If you would like to make a donation to Barry the marathon runner, you can do this through his virgin giving page HERE
