We’re helping to support the charity Focus Counselling in the Bath Half Marathon, where our owner and fudge cook Mark Lechmere will be running. This is such a good cause for very affordable counselling, and is well needed for the people who need it. We really admire this cause, as we know that organisations like this make such a big difference, and give the people who need the help, a little bit more motivation to come to them and get the help, with qualified counselors ready and waiting.
Mark has been training everyday… well almost everyday, but he’s racking up more and more miles everytime he goes out to train; just over 2 more weeks to go Mark, you’ve not got long to get to that 13 mile target. He’s trying his very best not to eat the fudge in the shop, but to be fair to him, our fudge cooks do make some amazing stuff. We’re hoping for good weather like the last two years, as the Fudge Factory was the perfect place to come and get a post marathon coffee; the atmosphere is always amazing when everyones finished. What better way to celebrate completing 13 miles with some fudge, even if you didn’t run it, just come in a get some anyway.
We’d love to know if you guys are running the Marathon as well, and if you’re running to support a Charity. Let us know on twitter or facebook @bathfudgeshop, or even tag us in a picture on instagram (fudgefactorybath) letting us see you guys in training!!!
We’ll be supporting Mark to help raise money, and you should too, go to their website http://www.focusbath.com/ to donate or call their number 01225 330096. Anything you guys could give will go a long way.
Good luck Mark, we’re all rooting for you!!!
