Proud dad Matt Vince raised more than £20,000 for Chailey Heritage Foundation last year when he ran the Brighton Marathon.

The charity has spaces for two runners for this April’s race – and Matt is now urging runners to help what he calls ‘a most wonderful charity.’

Matt completed the gruelling course with three friends in memory of his three-year-old daughter Luna-Rose who died in October 2022. He trains at FFH Gym in Station Road, Hailsham.

Luna-Rose and her mum Sam were regular attendees at Aquamovers, run by Chailey Heritage Foundation. Aquamovers provides expert therapy and socialising for babies and pre-school children with complex disabilities.

Matt said: “We had never run a marathon before so it was a very special event for us all.

“To have raised such a huge amount for this wonderful charity means the world to me and my family.

“Chailey Heritage made such a difference to Luna-Rose and Sam.”

Will Folkes, Head of Fundraising, said: “We have two places left in this iconic Marathon, and we want to hear from anyone who can run a marathon, and also who wants to do it to raise funds for us.

“Matt was a wonderful inspiration to us all, and his money raised ensured that our Aquamovers service was fully funded for another 12 months.

“Now we are looking for people to follow in Matt’s footsteps.

“If you like running but haven’t done a Marathon, could you push yourself that bit more?”
