Do not approach this man! If you see him pounding the pavements of Tunbridge Wells or running along the roads around Hadlow Down, beware – he is after your money!...

Accountant on the run

Do not approach this man! If you see him pounding the pavements of Tunbridge Wells or running along the roads around Hadlow Down, beware he is after your money!

First time London Marathon runner, Roger Ward, a partner with Creaseys, the award-winning Tunbridge Wells-based accountancy firm, is building up his training programme with a series of midweek and weekend training runs, ahead of the Virgin London Marathon on 17 April.

Ive taken part in a number of 10k races and two half-marathons previously but this is the biggest challenge I have faced, says Roger.

Although he was not successful in the national ballot, despite several previous applications, Roger was delighted to hear that he had been awarded a golden ticket by the Alzheimers Society.

My father-in-law suffers from dementia and he visits the Alzheimers Society once a week, says Roger. Not only does he seem to enjoy these sessions but it gives my mother-in-law (who is his full-time carer) a well deserved break.

He continues: However, the pressure is really on as I also have to raise over 2,000 in sponsorship. My work colleagues have been really supportive and I hope my clients will feel able to pledge some money to this very worthwhile charity.

If you would like to help Roger raise over 2,000 for the Alzheimers Society, visit his fundraising page at: www.virginmoneygiving.com/RogerWard
