Hospice plea to marathon run­ners

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A HOSPICE is urg­ing run­ners who have se­cured a place in next year’s London Marathon to join their team.

All of Ren­nie Grove Hospice Care’s bond places for the marathon have been filled, but peo­ple who have their own places are now be­ing sought to help raise funds.

Events fundraiser Joanne Hunt said: “We would re­ally love to have a team of 30 peo­ple next year to help cel­e­brate the char­ity’s 30th an­niver­sary.

“We host reg­u­lar ‘meet the team’ evenings where you can swap train­ing notes and fundrais­ing ideas and get to know us and your fel­low team mem­bers.

“We value our London Marathon team very highly and will look after you through­out your marathon jour­ney.”

The char­ity can help run­ners with fundrais­ing web pages, weekly train­ing and nu­tri­tion tips, spon­sor forms, posters, fundrais­ing ideas and re­sources for fundrais­ing events.

The team raised more than £30,000 this year and in 2015 the char­ity has set its sights higher.

There is a re­union after the race so the char­ity can con­grat­u­late and thank run­ners.

To join the team, call Jo Hunt on 01442 820 720 or email Joanne. Hunt@ren­niegrove.org.
