Mr Mandeville completes the London Marathon

On Sunday 21st April, Kelvin Mandeville, the caretaker at Great Bookham school took part in the London Marathon.  Running for the school, he completed the full 26.2 miles in a fantastic 4 hours 31 minutes and has raised an amazing £1,626.00.  All the money raised will go towards improving play facilities at the school. 

Kelvin said, "It was an amazing day despite being really hard work and I am delighted with my time of 4 hours, 31 minutes and 28 seconds. Massive thanks to everyone who supported me at the event and all of my sponsors!"

Kelvin is a fantastic role model to the children at Great Bookham, his efforts inspired the whole school and that afternoon the children all competed in a mini-marathon. Year 6 Sports Crew led the warm-up sessions, acted as 'hares' and also ran with individuals to encourage them to keep going.

Well done and thank you, Kelvin!
