LETTER: Would you run the marathon for us?

Here at the East Lancashire Hospice we are extremely pleased to hold one place for the 2013 London Marathon that will take place on Sunday April 21st 2013.

Consequently we are inviting people to apply to raise money for the hospice.

As we only have the one place available, we ask that you pledge to raise at least £2,000 and pay a non-refundable registration fee of £300. This will be added to your sponsorship total.

East Lancashire Hospice cares for people in Blackburn, Darwen, Hyndburn and the Ribble Valley who are coping with a life-limiting illness and the cost of providing this special way of caring that makes such a difference to our patients and their families is £3m. each year.

As such we rely on the support of our community and events such as this to raise the much needed funds that come back to helping local people.

If you are up for the challenge, please e-mail sharon.crymble@eastlancshospice.org.uk stating your full name and address or call Sharon on 01254 733410 for an application form. The successful person will be informed by February 1st.
