2009 London Marathon

I’m taking part in the Flora London Marathon 2009 on 26/04/2009 to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK and we’d really appreciate your support.

I will be running with a group of guys from the village I live in, called Yardley Hastings.  It’s a mixed bunch, some fast, some slower, others just aiming to get round but we’re all running for a good cause.

Sadly cancer touches so many of our lives and most of us have suffered a loss from this terrible disease. Jon (one of the group) lost his father a few years ago and my father in-law died last October, both from bowel cancer. This is what inspired us to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK.

We have all been credit crunched and we need to tighten our belts but we hope you can see the good in supporting us and this charity. We want to help improve peoples lives and improve the chance of survival.

It’s easy to sponsor us online by credit or debit card – just go to our Justgiving page:

Justgiving sends your donation straight to Bowel Cancer UK and automatically reclaims Gift Aid if you’re a UK taxpayer, so your donation is worth even more. I hope you’ll join us in supporting Bowel Cancer UK.

Thank you.

Oliver and the team
