We have received an offer from a London Marathon participant to raise funds for us through sponsorship. If you are running and are looking for a charity to support then we have set up an event on our online donation pages. You can set up your own fundraising page by clicking on the link here. You can collect online payments here and for those who are eligible we can collect Gift Aid too, meaning their donation is boosted by 25%!
Runners who are raising funds for us will receive a charity running shirt and we will share your details on our social media sites.
Contact us for more details.
The Virgin London Marathon starts in Greenwich Park, next to the Greenwich Observatory. Runners then make their way through Woolwich, past the Thames Barrier and then Cutty Sark. They will then continue towards Bermondsy. At the twelve-mile point they will see Tower Bridge, which they cross before turning right towards Canary Wharf. Next on towards Limehouse and the 20-miles stage, where many runners may ‘hit the wall’ as their bodies run out of energy. Those who continue will pass the Tower of London, run along Embankment, past the Houses of Parliament and past Nelson’s Column reaching the final 500m along Birdcage Walk, past Buckingham Palace and over the finish line to the sound of well-deserved cheers
Please make sure you have secured a place in this event before you start fundraising.

- “Hello. I’m really pleased to be helping Share A Star again in their fundraising endeavours. They thought I’d be keen because they know I like kayaking, I just kind of hope the lack of paddling skill I possess transfers better to rowing! Share A Star do some great work supporting severely unwell children and young people. Any support you can give will make an amazing difference.”
Brandon Longworth from Sky High Radio’s fundraising page
- Steven Jenner has an injury preventing him from paddling but he’s going to add some rhythm by beating the dragon boat’s drum for us! So he needs some sponsorshiptoo!
