Jon Lear (Head of Contracting & Business Development for The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust) has completed two marathons in the last two months in aid of the RWT Charity.

Jon first got into running as he wanted to keep fit and not give up his love of food. He ran both the Wolverhampton Carvers Marathon in September and The Great Birmingham Run this month to support The Trust’s Charity.

The Charity makes a real difference to patients of The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, their families and the staff that treat them. Funds are used to purchase added value items such as more advanced, specialist pieces of equipment (not generally provided by the NHS) better quality comfy furniture and any items that improve the environment, ambience and the experiences of patients and their families.

Leanne Bood, Fundraising Coordinator said “Thank you Jon for showing your support for patients and their families by raising an impressive £400 to date with donations still flying in!”
