Epwin Window Systems’ employees lace up for London Marathon

13 February 2024

Two Epwin Window Systems employees will be running this year’s London Marathon, which takes place on Sunday 21 April. Commercial Director Ray McGrady and Customer Service Advisor Tony Lloyd will both be running the 26.2 mile course to raise funds for two inspirational charities.

Ray is running on behalf of the British Heart Foundation. Ray says: “If it was not for the amazing work British Heart Foundation does in developing and supporting medical research, my dad would not be with us today. It’s inspiring to see the positive difference that can be made through supporting such crucial work and I will forever be grateful for the incredible work they do. I’m trying, in a small way, to give back by attempting the London Marathon.”

Tony will be running on behalf of SpecialEffect. Tony says: “As someone who has benefited from the help of SpecialEffect and is an ambassador for the charity, I couldn’t be prouder to take on this challenge for them. SpecialEffect assesses a person’s needs and adapts technology to harness whatever controlled movement they have, and creates bespoke gaming setups to enable them to play to the best of their abilities. Being included hugely benefits mental wellbeing and quality of life – bringing much needed independence, fun and escapism.”

Gerald Allen, Head of Marketing at Epwin Window Systems, said: “Everyone at Epwin Window Systems wishes Ray and Tony the very best of luck. The London Marathon is an impressive feat, not just because of the 26.2 miles on the day but also the months of training that go into getting to the start line. We salute you both!”
