Please sponsor our London Marathon runners – it’s not too late!

Post-race update (26th April):  Congratulations and a huge thank you to the four runners who took part in the 2015 Virgin London Marathon to raise money for Cherry Lodge Cancer Care. All four successfully completed the course in very respectable times. Unfortunately, our fifth prospective runner, Paul Woodward, was unable to take part due to injury. We send him our commiserations.

There is still time to show your support for our runners by sponsoring them as generously as you can. They have made an enormous physical effort on our behalf so the least the rest of us can do is to thank them by donating to our very good cause.
