Hungerford Arcade stallholder, Ian Spuffard is taking part in the London Marathon on 24th April, and is busy getting sponsors for the charity he is supporting which is “CLIC Sargent”. CLIC Sargent is an organisation dedicated to helping children and young people living with cancer, which is very dear to Ian’s heart. Ian’s sponsorship target is £1800 but he still has some way to go before the Marathon takes place.
Ian was at the desk in the Arcade and could not believe his eyes when his hero, Bear Grylls walked in with his two children. Ian approached Bear and explained to him why he is doing the London Marathon and asked if he would help him. Bear was very impressed and was more than happy to have his photograph taken with Ian and help with his final push to reach his charity target.
Ian will be at the Flea Market in Hungerford Town Hall on Sunday, 3rd April, where his proceeds will be going towards that target.
