Thirty-eight years old Darryn Ashford has taken up the challenge of a lifetime in aid of Tommy’s, the charity that supports families after the loss of a baby through miscarriage, still birth or premature birth. Darryn has a deep-rooted love of sport that has helped to momentarily take his mind off the upset of being part of a family that has used the support of Tommy’s.

In its 46th year, the London Marathon will see a vast number of people running and fundraising for their chosen charities. Darryn hopes to raise £1,500 to assist Tommy’s in vital research into the prevention of baby loss in pregnancy and premature birth. Darryn says, “I am thrilled to be running the London Marathon in aid of Tommy’s. This is one of the toughest, yet most exhilarating challenges of my life. Knowing that the money l raise will be used to support other parents going through what my wife and l have been through is what motivates me to keep going.”

Often working away from home and travelling around the country as part of his job as a kitchen and bathroom installation trainer for TREND Transformations, Darryn has still managed to keep up his training for the event by running 4-15 miles a day. With the help and support of his friends and family, it has proven to be a fun and rewarding task. He’s hoping to reach his £1,500 goal by race day on 23rd April. You can donate by visiting:

Formerly known as Granite Transformations, we rebranded in January 2017 taking into account our luxury new products including Orsoni mosaic tiles, along with offering a wide range of top-quality quartz, granite, recycled glass, and cabinet replacement materials. Our unique installation service eliminates the stress of managing multiple contractors and clients can avoid the problems and setbacks that are typical of home improvement projects. We use recycled materials in most of our production which makes TREND Transformations the eco-friendly option too.

Franchise opportunity:
Each showroom in the UK is owned by a franchisee. Our franchisees all have different backgrounds and skillsets, so don’t worry – renovation experience is not required. You will be taught everything you need to know. What matters is that you are passionate, self-motivated, enjoy working with people and ready for a positive change. Our comprehensive training programme includes time at HQ and on-site during your showroom build and at least two weeks’ field training following launch.
