Audiologist Damian talks about his London Marathon experience

As an audiologist, tinnitus is something Damian Eyre comes across everyday. He felt compelled, along with his friend Ian Wright, to raise money for us by taking on the Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 22nd April.

Damian says, "Well the morning after the day before! Yesterday was wonderful, an amazing experience, but physically and mentally challenging at times! The heat was a killer, so we took our time and made it round in 5hr 20, slower than I would have liked, but with the heat and it being so busy it was to be expected!"

 

Before and after! Damian is in the sunglasses.

As well as all their training, Damian and Ian have been doing an amazing job with their fundraising. Damian said, "There was a rally on the giving page yesterday which is amazing! You’ll see from our tops we had the Davidsons Homes logo added, as they donated £500. James from the company came down to see us at the finish line yesterday, A huge thank you to Davidsons and everyone who has supported us".

Thank you to Damian and Ian from all at the BTA. You really earned that beer!
