Congratulations to Mark Taylor...

for completing the Brighton Marathon, raising much needed funds for OPT.

"Those of you who know me already will be aware that I am very passionate about the natural and built environment of my home city of Oxford. For the past two years I have been a member of the Oxford Preservation Trust (OPT). I also regularly volunteer for OPT by participating in their Conservation Volunteer sessions - in order to help them maintain their beautiful nature reserves across Oxford. As a long time graduate of Environmental Biology I wanted to return to some of the practical work that I participated in whilst I studied.

You may also know that for the past year I have started to run regularly, I competed in the Oxford Half Marathon last year and have chose to compete in the Brighton Marathon as an opportunity to raise urgently needed funds for OPT.

This was a massive step for me and I trained intensively for months,.  If you haven't already done so, please support OPT by clicking here (quoting Mark) to make all my efforts worthwhile, and to keep Oxford as the beautiful city and countryside that it is.

Thank you for your support!..."

All the best, Mark Taylor.
