We were delighted to receive an email from Cath Munro recently, a close friend of Captain David Seath, who has very kindly arranged the installation of a memorial plaque on a bench within whittington Gardens, London. The gardens are located opposite the 23 mile mark for the London Marathon, close to the point Captain David Seath tragically collapsed during the 2016 Virgin London Marathon.
“Whittington Gardens is a wee patch of green on the edge of the City, right next to the 23 mile mark of the London marathon. I have visited this garden many times since Dave died – to laugh, to cry, to reflect and to remember. I am so pleased that there is a permanent tribute to Dave here, for those who knew him as well as for those who weren’t lucky enough to see his cheeky smile. He was an incredible person and a wonderful friend. He is very dearly missed. My thanks go to The City of London Corporation for helping to make it happen.”
As a family, we are incredibly grateful to Cath for making this wonderful gesture in memory of Captain David Seath which will prove a very poignant, powerful site to visit for friends, family and the general public in the future.
