Marathon Effort!

Congratulations to Martin Johnson who has raised over £1200 for Drake Music Scotland running the 2013 Edinburgh Marathon.

“My father was a musician, composer and Scottish music historian” said Martin “and after his death in 2009 I wanted to find a charity to support in his memory. Drake music Scotland works with disabled children to give them the chance to learn, perform and compose music – a really valuable and worthwhile cause.”

Martin ran over 400km training for this his first marathon and completed the 26 miles in an impressive 4 hours and 18 minutes.  “I found the last 7 miles very hard but had a fantastic day and thanks to everyone for the support not to mention the good folk of East Lothian who handed out all those jelly babies”.

    What a brilliant effort! It is people like yourself who really make things happen for us DMS muzos. (I was a long time friend of your dad-you used to come visit us at our cottage in East Lothian in the distant past!)
