Epwin Window Systems duo shines in London Marathon

On 21 April 2024, Epwin Window Systems’ Commercial Director Ray McGrady and Customer Service Advisor Tony Lloyd took on the iconic London Marathon course to raise funds for charities close to their hearts.

Ray McGrady said: “It was incredible to be able to join 53,000 runners on the start line. The crowds along the route were amazing and crossing the finish line was a special moment I’ll always remember. It was a privilege to run the event to raise funds for British Heart Foundation. Without their amazing work, my dad wouldn’t be with us today.”

Tony Lloyd said: “It’s the London Marathon! A marathon is always tough, but all the training paid off on the day. It was an honour to run this world-famous course on behalf of SpecialEffect, who I’m an ambassador for.”

Ray McGrady finished the course in 04:27:54, raising £2,131 for his charity, British Heart Foundation, which funds around £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them.

Tony Lloyd completed the course in 04:56:22 and raised £3,618 for SpecialEffect, which transforms the lives of physically disabled people right across the world through the innovative use of technology.

Gerald Allen, Head of Marketing at Epwin Window Systems, said: “Everyone at Epwin Window Systems sends their congratulations and respect to Ray and Tony for taking on the challenge of the London Marathon. We should also salute their fundraising efforts: between them, they raised nearly £5,750 for charity – a phenomenal effort in itself!”
