Well done on marathon effort

CONGRATULATIONS are due to Chris Rix and Jordan Hughes, who together raised more than £1,500 for two local sports clubs for disabled people, in a seven-hour marathon Big Push.

Chris and Jordan, both members of the Bury Bombers wheelchair basketball club, covered the distance from Tesco in Bury St Edmunds to Tesco in Sudbury to raise funds for the Bombers and Suffolk Spartans powerlifting club.

Chris, from Alpheton, who works at Tesco in Sudbury and is a keen powerlifter, completed the journey pushing himself along in his wheelchair, with Jordan, from Bury, walking beside him. Between them they raised £1,510.27 to be shared between the clubs.

Together with a group of friends and supporters, who made sure traffic was aware of them, Chris and Jordan left Bury at 9am and reached Sudbury at 4pm. All in all a magnificent achievement by everyone involved.
