Shropshire insurance specialist takes on marathon challenge in memory of brother

Sarah Lincoln is in training

Sarah Lincoln, who works for Henshalls Insurance Brokers, in Newport, will take part in the marathon in October in memory of her late brother Bryan Cutter, and run for Severn Hospice.

“It took me a few days to take in the news that I was offered one of only 10 charity places at Severn Hospice and to let it sink in,” Sarah said.

“I applied for a spot immediately after completing last year’s Virtual London Marathon and I’m so delighted and excited that they offered me a spot.”

Sarah’s brother Bryan, who was a director of Henshalls Group, died in March 2020 after a two-year battle with cancer.

“Severn Hospice took care of Bryan when he needed it,” Sarah said.

“While no one ever wants to think that someone they care about might need the services provided by hospice, it is essential that they are there for individuals and families when they need them most. .

“I want to help Severn Hospice support other families with their unwavering commitment to step up and surround them with dignity, compassion and love.”

She added: “Bryan encouraged me to start running through a Couch to 5k initiative with Lawley Running Club, where he was an avid runner and running leader.

“He kept running even after the surgery and subsequent chemotherapy treatment, still enjoying life to the fullest until his peaceful passing at Telford Hospice.

“I’m so grateful that I got to experience racing with him. I wish I had listened to his advice more and started racing sooner, so I would have had a lot more opportunities to race with him.

Over the next few months, Sarah will be hosting a host of fundraising activities, including an Easter chocolate basket raffle, bake sales and contests.
