Two event professionals have completed a marathon effort, finishing the London Marathon yesterday to raise money for industry charity Meeting Needs.

Paul Hussey of Conference Doctor and Kate Conway, Hyundai Motor UK, finished the gruelling 26.2 mile course in 4 hours 6 minutes and 6 hours 20 minutes respectively, raising more than £3,000 along the way.

Hussey said: "It was good; it was chilly to start with, so ideal running weather, and there were crowds all the way around so when you were flagging a bit there was lots of support to keep you going.

"The legs are OK today - they're a bit stiff, but then running a marathon is not meant to be easy. I had an ice bath when I got home which always helps."

The money raised from the pair is enough to sponsor a project for Meeting Needs.

Donations are still being accepted for Hussey and Conway on their fundraising websites.
