#FridgeMan crosses the line for Diabetes UK with new bride-to-be


Astute Group backs extraordinary efforts. We proudly sponsored Daniel Fairbrother, aka #FridgeMan, from our hometown of Stevenage, who ran the London Marathon for charity while carrying a 26KG fridge named Tallulah.

Daniel surpassed himself, not only raising a fantastic £12,000 for Diabetes UK, but he stopped near Big Ben, got down on one knee, and proposed to his girlfriend, Hayley, in front of a cheering crowd.

She said yes!

“It was the right time, it was a big stage, it was a big achievement and I thought, what better time?” Daniel told the BBC. “Today’s been tough, I’m not going to lie – and the only thing that got me through was knowing that Hayley was there waiting at Big Ben.” 

Basking in the occasion, he reflected, “Considering I’ve just run the marathon with a fridge on my back, I feel pretty good.” 

Daniel then announced that he and Tallulah are already signed up for their next race — a 100km ultra-marathon in the Peak District.

Astute Group donated £1000 to help Daniel raise money for Diabetes UK.
