We are delighted that four people from across our Trust are running the London Marathon on 23rd April, 2017.
Each person is running for a charity that is important to them and we’d be thrilled if you could help them to raise as much money as possible by donating to their fundraising pages.
The runners are:
Moira Anderson Head of Watling Park School. Moira is running in aid of Barnardos, a charity she feels really strongly about. Click here to see Moira’s page and donate to Barnardo’s.
Olivia Mason Reception Teacher at Watling Park School.
Olivia is running in memory of her mum who she very sadly lost to Myeloma. Her target is £2,000 of which she has nearly reached so please help Liv to hit and exceed this target! Click here to donate.
Mark Greatrex Chief Exectuive of the Trust.
Mark is running for RSBC (Royal Society for Blind Children).
“I work alongside an inspiring, local charity which works to develop confidence in visually impaired young people. They initially supported a visually impaired 5 year old at our Rutherford House School. Their focus in supporting these young people taking charge of their futures is utterly inspiring and an extremely worthwhile cause.

Alison Colenso Head of Deer Park School.
Alison is running to raise £500 (or more!) to improve the comfort of the consulting room in the Breast Care Unit at West Middlesex Hospital.
“I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. Although devastating news, it was caught early and after surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and hormone therapy my treatment was a success. In 2015 I had a recurrence and further surgery was needed – again treatment was a huge success thanks to the team at the Breast Care Unit at West Middlesex Hospital.
The money I am hoping to raise will go some way to improving the comfort of the consulting room. We’re talking about a lick of paint; soft furnishings; a picture or two. It doesn’t sound like much, but the NHS does not have the money to do this and I know it will make a difference to the patients. The comfort of the consulting room should match the high standard of care given by the breast care nurses.
So, thank you for reading and supporting this cause. Eight years ago I couldn’t have run 1 mile and now I’m about to run 26! Anything is possible!” To sponsor Alison, click here.
