Laura Lamelle, from
Holland-on-Sea, Francis Mills, who lives in Dovercourt,
and Harry Harkness, of Colchester, who all work for the train operator in its Colchester-based office, have committed
to undertake gruelling challenges.

Laura is taking part in the London Marathon for the Multiple Sclerosis charity, Francis is tackling the Brighton Marathon in aid of Debra UK and Harry is running the Paris Marathon to raise money for Brainbow.

They are training together to ensure they are in tip-top
form when they compete and have all completed a half-
marathon as part of their preparation.

Crystal Wright, Abellio Greater Anglia’s financial controller, said: “We really admire Laura, Francis and Harry for the dedication with which they are preparing for this task and we wish them every success in meeting this challenge.”
