PJ, who – among other things – is usually busy running around with the team ensuring our clients’ construction sites are quickly and efficiently connected to broadband, has started making time for training. He explains:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Terminal illness, such as Cancer, affects all of us in some way, which is why I’ve chosen to run for this amazing organisation; their fantastic work continues to benefit an incredible amount of people and I want to give just a little bit back.

This year’s London Marathon is taking place on Sunday 28th April 2019. PJ is working towards raising a total of £5,000, if you’d like to donate and follow PJ’s journey, head over to his JustGiving page.

Proper training began in December 2018, when I took part in the Hogs Back Road Race and completed the 11.4km run around the Loseley Estate – it has really built my momentum for the big day. The UK Connect team have been brilliant in terms of support and have also joined in on a few of my training sessions.

“Working with UK Connect has been a smooth and easy process. The team has been fantastic by going above and beyond, getting our broadband installed for us within extremely tight deadlines and ensuring the client relationship is done in an efficient manner. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the UK Connect team, as I find they are highly reliable and have good attention to detail and carry out the job to an exceptional standard.
