Congratulations to Serenity’s Vicky Parkes

medals
At Serenity, we are always hugely proud of the achievements of the team.
Last week, Vicky one of our Client Relationship Managers, based in our Cornwall office completed three successive London Marathons, earning a trio of Bronze Silver and Gold Medals (here she is pictured crossing the finishing line in 2018).
Despite being diagnosed with a heart condition and numerous surgeries, and having an implanted cardiac defibrillator fitted, since 2017 Vicky has been running and raising funds for FLEET – Front Line Emergency Equipment Trust who aim to install as many public use defibrillators in towns and villages around Cornwall as well as providing invaluable funding for mobile emergency support.  www.fleet.org.uk.
‘Each year has had it’s own special memories and challenges, 2018 was scorching hot and a real challenge.  This year, running with a buddy certainly helped overcome the mental barriers and physical pain, and that would be my one piece of advice to anyone running – find a companion and help each other through it – just like many areas of life’
Vicky is now on a rapid road to recovery in time to take place in the famous Mid-day Furry Dance at Helston’s Flora Day on 8th May where she will be dancing with our Head Of Life Planning, Jeremy Squibb.
