Fortis Green Lib Dem councillor and local election candidate Matt Davies has completed his London Marathon charity run today with a personal best. He shaved five minutes off his previous best time, running the course in 5 hours and 37 minutes, raising over £2,000 for Amnesty International.

Cllr Matt Davies comments:

“Although aching all over, I’m delighted to have finished the run, even with a very modest improvement in my best time. More importantly, we have raised money for Amnesty, and I would like to thank all of those who sponsored me, especially my fellow Haringey councillors.

“Although I am taking the rest of the day off, I’m looking forward to getting back on the campaign trail. All the leaflet delivering in recent weeks has been very good training.”
