Edinburgh Councillor's Marathon Effort for SVR11 Aug 2009
City of Edinburgh Councillor David Neckett proudly hands over a cheque for £370 to Whitefoord House resident Tommy Adams.
It is the first installment of nearly £500 that David raised for SVR by running the Edinburgh Marathon. SVR's Chief Executive Ian Ballantyne joined Tommy and Daivd in the newly refurbished Maclagan Room at Whitefoord House for the handover.
This was Councillor Becket's first marathon and the picture below shows how delighted he was to finish. SVR was certainly delighted that he raised such a wonderful sum. Truly a marathon effort!
