Cranleigh Rotarian Andy Kolmar is training to take part in this year’s London Marathon on Sunday 24th April, in order to raise some much needed funds for The Amber Foundation.
Amber is a local charity, based in Ockley, which exists to help young people who come to them without work, without self-esteem and without any sense of direction, to transform their lives. Almost all are long-term unemployed, homeless or have a history of substance abuse. By the time they leave, the vast majority are ready to lead sustainable, independent lives.
This will not be Andrew’s first London Marathon, as he took part in the second one ever, in 1982. In fact, if he completes this year’s run he will create a record for the longest period between finishing a first London Marathon. A gap of 34 years!
