johnnyHello to all you lovely Suma Customers.

For those of you that don’t know me, i’m Johnny, and can usually be found working in Sales, New Business, or delivering your Suma orders in the East Anglia Region.

In 2007 & 2008 I ran the London Marathon in aid of Leonard Cheshire, they looked after my mother when she was sick. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I am now looking for a new challenge. This September I am running in the Berlin Marathon in aid of NSE (National society for Epilepsy).

nse_logoEpilepsy affects over 1/2 million people in the UK and well over 50 million worldwide. One day this figure could be vastly reduced by your help. Most People have seen somebody have a seizure or know of somebody who has experienced one. Sometimes its not a pretty sight, and it can be humiliating to the point of making people shed tears, with your help we can reduce the tears and develop better medication so Epilepsy sufferer’s can lead a normal life as possible.

If you would like to help me, help others who suffer from Epilepsy then please donate online at the address below, alternatively, should you want to pass on a contribution to a Suma driver, who will then pass your generosity to me then please feel free to do so.

Many thanks for your Support,

Johnny Spencer
