I am running the Plymouth half-marathon on 23rd April 2017 in memory of my lifelong friend, Mark Pinnegar (aka Pins). Sadly, Mark died suddenly last year aged just 52. Mark was an Old Boy of St. Boniface College, Plymouth and a rugby man through and through who played for Plymouth Albion and Sudbury RFC for many years and who went on to coach in Ireland. He leaves behind his lovely wife Denise and two beautiful, young boys, Séan and Cían.
All money raised is in aid of a Trust Fund launched by Sudbury RFC in February 2017 to help Denise raise Mark’s two young sons. All donations, however big or small will be greatly received and go a long way to supporting these two fine young lads as they grow into strapping young men. If nothing else, your sponsorship or messages of encouragement will make me carry out this meritable act and get me off the couch; I will have no excuse. You can enjoy watching me slog my way around 13 plus miles of Plymouth, the hometown where Mark and I grew up together.
Please share this request in aid of Mark’s young family. Thank you in advance for your help. You will be running with me, Pins. Anthony Payne
