Happy New Year! We are now all fully recovered from the long Christmas break and looking forward to the year ahead. The biggest fundraising event in our diary this year (and every year) is the London Marathon. This massive event is not only vitally important to us for all the funds that it raises for us (£37,000 last year!!)
It is such an exciting event for all of us to participate in. We have 34 runners attempting the 26 mile course, the brave souls. This year as we do every year we will be based at The Grapes in Narrow Street to cheer and support our runners. This year The Grapes are under new ownership having been bought by 3 partners; Sir Ian McKellen, Evgeny Lebedev and Sean Mathias. Victoria and I met the new team this week and they are really friendly and welcoming - we are really looking forward to working with them.
The London Marathon is on Sunday 22nd of April this year and we will all be there, along with members, friends and family to cheer the runners on. Why not head over and join us, the more the merrier!!
The new manager Paul Mathias tells us he really wants to make it a fun, family orientated day.
So plan ahead now, get it in your diaries!!!!
