Virgin London Marathon running make good times on the day!

April 2019

Our two runners in this year's Virgin London Marathon completed the famous 26.2 miles across the capital in great times raising funds for our hospice.

Jamie Norton ran the marathon in a fantastic 3 hours 28 minutes.

He was cheered on all the way by his family and Manager Chuck who had seen him both train for the run and been part of the incredible charity single 'Hold Up A Light' which Jamie penned with Mark Owen ten years ago for Take That.

Tamsin Murley our Community Fundraiser was there to congratulate Jamie on this monumental achievement when he crossed the finishing line.
