Jennifer Camilletti pounds the London tarmac for MHA

 

Jennifer Camilletti chose MHA as her chosen charity for the London Marathon because schemes such as Live at Home are close to her heart. Her 89-year-old grandmother receives help from a similar scheme in her home country of Italy.

 

Structural engineer Jen said: “It’s really important for older people to be able to stay in their own home and my grandmother gets help and support from a similar organisation. I know how much it means to her to have contact with people and she finds this really helpful.

 

“I thought that since I wanted to run the London Marathon again, I wanted to support something that is close to my heart."

 

Jen received support from her employer CWA through various activities to boost her fundraising including Casual Fridays, charity breakfasts and quizzes.
