Norwich Cathedral's Ashley ran marathon for hospital 

Norwich Cathedral's Master of Music, Ashley Grote, lined up with the 39,000 other people to run the 2017 London Marathon on Sunday and raised an incredible £16k this year.

Ashley ran in aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity for the third year in succession, motivated by the ongoing treatment his daughter Emily is receiving at the hospital for treatment of a rare brain tumour. 

Ashley has smashed his target of raising over £50k over three years of marathons for Great Ormond Street, thanks to the support of so many people.

Do you appreciate our service and stories?

The Network Norwich & Norfolk website has been published for over 13 years now and we have an established team of professional journalists covering the activities, organisations and churches which make up the county’s Christian community. Our whole purpose is to support that community by daily providing accurate, unbiased stories and features.

To pay for that service, we rely on our partner organisations, advertisers and readers to, in turn, support us financially. We want to keep the website free for everyone to access and continue to be able to pay for writers to produce the content you can enjoy every day.

We would like to ask you to consider supporting our work and suggest you might want to make a small regular donation of just £1 a week and become one of our 100 Friends, or a larger one-off or annual amount.

Because we are part of a registered charity we can reclaim Gift Aid on your donations if you are a tax-payer.
