IET member Dimitris Loumanis completes the London Marathon in aid of IET Connect.

Congratulations to IET member and Vice Chair of the IET London Network Dimitris Loumanis for completing the 2014 London Marathon in aid of IET Connect, our Benevolent Fund.

So far, Dimitris has raised over £2,000. Donations are still coming in, and you can donate on Dimitris’ JustGiving page.

Dimitris said: “It felt great – finishing the course was a huge relief as you can never be sure how it will go on the day. It also felt great to raise more than 200 per cent of the original target for donations and finish under my target time.

“I wanted to help raise awareness of IET Connect and the great job they’re doing helping hundreds of IET members and their families in need. The donation page will remain open for some time, so please continue to donate to a worthwhile cause!

“The IET Local Network in Central London and Atkins – the company I work for – have been big supporters of this fundraising campaign.

“Members and non-members alike have embraced our efforts, contributed towards it, and supported me throughout the race. The real stars are the people who work at IET Connect who do their utmost to help those in need.”
