Run marathon to help the hos­pice

Bristol Post - - NEWS -

PEO­PLE who have se­cured places to run the 2019 Lon­don Marathon are be­ing urged to pull on their train­ers to raise money for St Peter’s Hos­pice.

Run­ners found out this month whether they were suc­cess­ful in se­cur­ing places for the iconic run in the cap­i­tal.

Now the charity is ask­ing peo­ple to pound the streets of Lon­don to raise money for Bris­tol’s only adult hos­pice.

St Peter’s Hos­pice com­mu­nity fundraiser Es­ther Hall said: “The Vir­gin Money Lon­don Marathon is truly iconic, and run­ning it for St Peter’s Hos­pice would make this once in a life-time ex­pe­ri­ence all the more spe­cial.

“If you choose to run for your lo­cal hos­pice, we’ll be there to sup­port you through­out your jour­ney.

“I can think of no greater mo­ti­va­tion to get you out pound­ing the pave­ments, than know­ing that you’re sup­port­ing lo­cal pa­tients and their fam­i­lies.”

Any­one want­ing to run the Lon­don Marathon for the hos­pice should con­tact Es­ther on 01275391420 or email com­mu­nity@stpeter­shos­pice.org.
