We have 6 participants filling our Golden Bond places in the Virgin London Marathon this year. One member of Team Donkey Sanctuary is Andy Messenger, bank manager of the Barclays York branch.
Andy became involved with The Donkey Sanctuary early last year, after a conversation with Sharon Shanks, our Yorkshire Welfare Adviser at her local bank in Malton. Since then, Andy has thrown himself into fundraising for us including branch bake sales, dressing as our donkey mascot (which he has a particular love for!) and running the Leeds 10K.
His next challenge is the London Marathon on 2 April 2016. Only having donned his trainers last year, he is now a self confessed running nut.
