“I’m doing this to say thanks to the Charity for the care and support it gave my grandad. I believe we need to look after our veterans, and The Royal Star & Garter Homes does a great job of doing that. I’m hoping to raise as much as I can and I’m grateful to Apple for the match-funding. The Marathon’s not going to be easy but thinking of my granddad will help me.”

Joanna’s grandmother Muriel Webster lived at the Surbiton Home for two years before her death in August 2018. The 35-year-old, from Horsham, is also running to thank the Charity: “The care and love my Grandma received from everyone at The Royal Star & Garter Homes was amazing. I was blown away by it. It was a real home-from-home, not just for Grandma but us relatives too.”

Father-of-three Rikky, 36, is a Helicopter Engineer with the Commando Helicopter Force, based at RNAS Yeovilton. He is raising money for the Charity following a chance conversation: “A friend of mine told me about the Charity, and being in the military myself, I think it’s great. Maybe one day in the future The Royal Star & Garter Homes will be caring for me or someone I serve with.”
