Ben Quiney to run London Marathon in aid of Sands

With support from Agents Giving, Ben Quiney from Audio Agent is running the London Marathon with his brother Ollie on Apri 23rd, in aid of Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal charity and aims to raise £4,000.

The following Saturday, Ben will also run The Ultra Marathon, The Fellsman covering more than 60 miles over very hard rugged moorland. The event climbs over 11,000 feet in its path from Ingleton to Threshfield in the Yorkshire Dales.

Ben and Ollie have been inspired to raise money for this charity after Ollie and wife Amy sadly lost their newborn daughter Minnie at just one day old, due to an undetected lung infection. Ben said: “Minnie was absolutely beautiful; perfect in every way. I will cherish the few short moments I had cuddling and holding Minnie forever, she was and is an angel. This was an extremely traumatic and upsetting experience, one which Ollie, Amy and both their families will never get over or really truly understand.” Moments after losing Minnie, Sands provided a memory box as a way to create memories which can be cherished.

In partnership with Rightmove, Agents Giving is supporting Ben Quiney with his fundraising for Sands, thanks to a Rightmove grant, which will help with costs of £400.
