Dunston Hall Food & Beverage Director hits Marathon Trail for Variety Club




Paul Murfitt (40), Director of Food & Beverage at De Vere Dunston Hall, near Norwich is running his first marathon in Nottingham on Sunday, September 12 in aid of the Variety Club Children’s Charity.

“The Variety Club Children’s Charity is the De Vere Group’s charity of the year,” said Paul Murfitt. “I decided that it would be a good challenge to have a go at a marathon and add some extra funds to the £10,000 raised by our golf day and ball in May. I have been doing around 40 miles a week and hope that this will be enough preparation!”
