Sep 07 2019 TRD’s Stephen Fisher raises £3000 in aid of Snowden Trust Demolition Blog SuperUser Account CharityLondon MarathonSnowden TrustStephen Fisher Stephen Fisher, Business Development Manager at TRD completed the London Marathon on 28th April 2019 in aid of a charity that is very close to his heart called Snowden Trust. Snowden Trust provide grants to physically disabled and sensory impaired students studying in the UK, in further or higher education or those training towards employment. Stephen said of the event: “It was a lifelong ambition to complete the London Marathon, and when the NFDC offered TRD a place, Melvyn Cross (Managing Director at TRD) offered the place to myself. After training hard on the run up to the marathon, I was both excited and nervous on the day, but loved every minute of it”. Snowden’s grants help cover additional costs that students incur as a result of their disability and where available statutory funding does not cover them. Costs include vital support such as sign language interpreters, people to take notes, computers, specialist software, wheelchairs or special accommodation and equipment. About 100 grants are awarded each year, ranging from £250 to £3,000. Congratulations to Stephen who completed the marathon in a very respectable 3 hours and 20 minutes and raised £3000 for the charity.
