Watford Observer: Runners take part in London 10k to raise money for Abbots Langley charity Runners take part in London 10k to raise money for Abbots Langley charity

Two men ran the London 10k in a bid to raise money for an Abbots Langley charity.

David Gibbon from Hemel Hempstead and Paul Adams from Catford, London, ran the BUPA London 10,000 on Sunday, May 25 to raise money for DEMAND based along Mallard Road.

The pair raised nearly £400 for the charity which specialises in designing and building equipment for people with disabilities.

Mr Gibbon, who has raised more than £100 for the Abbots Langley charity, said: "I wasn't sure until the last minute whether I would be able to run due to an injury. Watching the video of Rio Woolf who DEMAND made a kit for to aid his prosthetic leg and meeting him at DEMAND’s recent fundraising lunch with Esther Rantzen was the inspiration I needed. In the end I decided to go for it."

Mr Adams raised £275 for the Mallard Road charity and he expects more donations to come in.

He said: "The race itself was great, the atmosphere was fantastic and running alongside so many people helped spur me on"
