Sponsorship in 2024

Cherry Lodge Cancer Care is currently recruiting runners to take part in the 2024 Vitality London 10,000 on Sunday 22nd September – could you run this iconic 10k for us and raise at least £200 in sponsorship? Seven swimmers, with ages spanning nine decades, raised more than £2,000 by taking part in the CL Sponsored Swim in QE Boys’ School pool on Sunday 7th July 2024. Renie Price, CL member and volunteer, took to the air on Sunday 23rd June 2024 to raise money for us – see Congratulations to Renie – Cherry Lodge’s intrepid hang glider to read her story and link to her Enthuse page (with £2,018 raised so far). The 2024 tcs London Marathon took place on Sunday 21st April. Our six runners on the day – Callum Burns, Lucy Lee, William Murchison, Joe Patrick, Andrew Shoreman, and Artan Taraboshi – plus Liam Pratt (whose run was deferred due to illness) together raised a fantastic joint total in excess of £17,000. Thank you to our runners and to everyone who sponsored them. The Easter Sponsored Walk ‘n’ Talk, held in Oakhill Park on Sunday 24th March 2024, was very much enjoyed and raised over £2,200.
