Fab five complete half-marathon for Ark

Five fab fundraisers went the extra 13.1 miles for Ark Cancer Centre Charity by taking part in the 2018 Basingstoke Half-Marathon.

Darren Barham, Mark Dolby, Darren Lovegrove, Faith Ruto and Raquel Searle all flew the flag for Ark at Sunday's event - and all five recorded impressive times on the challenging course.

He's an Arkrider legend and Ark Cancer Centre Charity champion - and on Sunday, marvellous Mark Dolby will be flying the flag for Ark at the Basingstoke Half-Marathon.

Mark, who is a director of Ark Our Partner business supporter Beaufort Financial, has already chalked up several sponsored bike rides, half-marathons, and even a hair-raising abseil down a Hampshire landmark to raise funds for, and awareness of, Ark's £5million appeal to help fund the new Hampshire Hospitals NHS cancer treatment centre at Basingstoke hospital.

Darren goes the extra mile (again!) for ARK

When it comes to raising funds for Ark Cancer Centre Charity, dynamic Darren Lovegrove has really gone the extra mile - and he's getting ready to do it all again on Sunday.

Darren is marketing manager at Ark Our Partner business supporter Clarke & Son Solicitors, and he has played a key role in the fundraising drive that has seen the Basingstoke law firm raise more than £60,000 for Ark since 2015.

Last weekend, Darren and 18 fellow fundraisers were part of a Clarke & Son team that took part in a sponsored 13-mile River Thames London Bridges Walk in support of Ark.

The amazing team at a Basingstoke law firm really walked the walk when it came to their latest fundraising feat in support of Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

The team at Clarke & Son Solicitors have raised £55,000 for Ark Cancer Centre Charity since 2015, and they are on a mission to add a further £15,000 to that total in 2018-19.

Lights, camera, action - Ark supporters have a busy weekend ahead
