On your Marks…..Set…..Go

January 22nd, 2014



The Virgin London Marathon will be  taking place in April and we have 6 runners taking part. Each of the runners have been set a challenge to raise as much in sponsorship as possible. This isn’t something they have taken lightly and it shows with the weird and wonderful fundraising ideas they have come up with, so far we have:

Held a Christmas Charity Bag Pack

Managed to gain match funding on our donations through

We have a golf tournament on the 3rd February

A hot dog eating competition which will be held in Alsop High School on the 7th Feb

A charity bucket collection in the Green Rooms

Sponsorship from a local building company for our runners shirts

Train tickets donated through Virgin railway


Although we still have a long way to go to reach our target and until the big day itself  I think you will agree the efforts made by all are magnificent. We are very grateful for all the support and voluntary contributions we receive as a charity and I thought it was important to show the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.
