Mildren fundraiser – he’s done it again!

Prolific fundraiser, Dave Stokes of Mildren Construction has taken part in another amazing fundraising activity for WaterAid.

Dave entered the London Marathon, completing the race in a very respectable 6 hours 59 minutes and 40 seconds.

He said, “We all take clean fresh water for granted in this country. However for millions of people in the world it is just a dream. I would like to help make that dream come true. Please go to the WaterAid website to find out more about their work. Every £50 raised means another village gets a well.”

Mildren Construction funded the trip of a lifetime for Dave to embark on a ‘working holiday’ to Madagascar and on 8th September last year a team of eight intrepid climbers took on the Three Peaks Challenge in Scotland, Wales and England – raising another £2,800 for their endeavours.

Dave said, “It was very tough in the extreme heat – on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far – particularly as I approached the 20 mile marker. However, the phenomenal encouragement from the crowd and amazing support from the aid stations providing water and advice helped me through. I focused on the plight in Madagascar and thought if they can survive the hardship, then I can certainly run a race for them!”
