Hugo Fenwick has raised over £5,000 for the No More Breast Cancer Campaign by running a marathon on Saturday 8th September in 4 hours 25 minutes.

The 26 mile course was in France, around the chateaux of the Medoc region.

We congratulate him on his success and thank him for such an outstanding effort and achievement. We also thank everyone who kindly sponsored him.

Hugo has chosen to support the No More Breast Cancer Campaign because: "a number of our friends have been diagnosed with this horrendous disease over recent years. Without exception, they have all been bravely fighting on, despite the acute severity of the treatment. No More Breast Cancer is seeking to raise the profile of a campaign to research the possible link of the rising incidence of breast cancer with the exposure to toxic chemicals. There is a strong argument to suggest that  low-level exposure to toxics and hormone-disruptors from pesticides in food to chemicals in consumer products has a direct link to the increasing rates of breast cancer diagnosis."
