Good Luck and Thank You to Phyllis’s London Marathon Runners
Phyllis Tuckwell would like to say a huge thank you and good luck to the 22 runners who are taking part in this year’s London Marathon to raise money to help fund its vital hospice care.
Nic Mogford-Revess, Sophie Mogford-Revess, Leah Symes, Richard Farnfield, Jo McGoldrick, German Camigla, Thomas Clayton, Isabel Jelfs-Monje, Sadan Ferriera, Gemma Robinson, Jerome Lane, Anna Field, Ellie Pope, Steve Page, Tim Hulbert, Louise Naylor, Leonie Collingwood-Johnson, Jenna Hazeldine, Caitlin Mason, Gemma Straker, Philip Smith and Beth Williams will all be running the 26.2 miles of the famous London route on Sunday 2nd October, with eight runners from the Hi-Speed team choosing to complete their virtual London Marathon at the same time but on their route in Ash Vale.
Next year’s London Marathon will return to its traditional month of April, instead of being held in October, with the marathon taking place on Sunday 23rd April, and Phyllis Tuckwell has a limited number of allocated spaces. If you’re feeling inspired and would like to apply to run the marathon in aid of this amazing local charity, simply visit www.pth.org.uk/london-marathon-2023 to apply. All applications will be read and places will be allocated fairly. Please note, registering your details does not mean that you automatically have a place. If you have any further questions, please email [email protected] or call 01252 729446.
All of the money raised by those taking part in the London Marathon in aid of Phyllis Tuckwell will go towards helping fund the supportive and end of life care – including medical and nursing care, therapies, counselling, social work advice and practical support – which it provides for local patients and families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer. As the NHS/Government usually only covers about 20% of its costs, it has to raise over £25,000 a day to be able to offer all of its services, and therefore relies heavily on the support and generosity of the local community.
