Jayne completes ‘marathon’ charity challenge

Incommunities’ equalities officer, Jayne Booth, is celebrating after completing three marathons in three days to raise funds for The Prince’s Trust.

Keen runner Jayne swapped the office for the great outdoors to take part in the Jurassic Coast Challenge, following the famous south coast footpath in Dorset and Devon.

Jayne’s efforts were rewarded by raising £260 for The Prince’s Trust – the chosen charity of Incommunities’ Group Chief Executive, Geraldine Howley, in her role as President of the Chartered Institute of Housing.

Jayne said: “I ran over 80 miles and it was an exhilarating and rewarding experience.

“Knowing I was raising funds for such a great charity which is able to transform the lives of young people was a real motivation. I’m now looking forward to taking on another endurance challenge.”

Geraldine Howley, Incommunities Group Chief Executive, said: “A big well done Jayne on this outstanding feat.

“It is another great example of how colleagues across Incommunities and our housing partners are together determined to raise as much as possible for The Prince’s Trust.”

In addition to Jayne’s challenge, Assistant Chief Executive, Adrienne Reid, is midway through swimming 127 miles at her local pool – the equivalent of the length of the Leeds Liverpool Canal.

In June, Geraldine Howley, Adrienne Reid and colleague Greg Robinson are also taking part in their second Great North Swim at Lake Windermere in aid of The Prince’s Trust. Last year, the team raised over £3,000 for the national youth charity.

The Prince’s Trust charity, which celebrates its 40th birthday this year, works with young people from 13 to 30 who are unemployed or struggling at school to turn their lives around.
