London's Calling for RWT Charity runners

Eight fundraisers are hoping to keep on running this weekend when they take part in the London Landmarks Half Marathon to boost funds for The Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust (RWT) Charity.

This event, which takes place on Sunday 2 April, is a closed road, central London run and is the only half marathon to go through both the City of London and City of Westminster.

It is organised by baby charity, Tommy's to benefit that charity and many other good causes. And a host of staff from RWT will be lacing up their trainers to show charity begins at home by supporting their local cause. 

Those taking part are: 

Katie’s sister Nicola Hamer and their friend Stacey Stoddart are also taking part. 

Katie, aged 37, said: “I feel fine, confident, although I started this week with a bad back. 

"It’s only a twinge now and I think we’re all ready for it. The weather forecast is looking good, it’s going to be dry, so conditions should be ideal for us.” 

Deepak said he was “excited” about the challenge ahead. “I’m actually looking forward to it even though I’ve never done anything like this before – the last thing I took part in was probably sports day at school!” he said. 

“I’ve been training since last August and I feel that I am definitely going to do it, I have confidence,” said the 41-year-old. 

Amanda Winwood, Charity Development Manager, said everyone would be rooting for the RWT runners. 

“We really appreciate our colleagues stepping up for their local charity in this way and urge people to visit their JustGiving pages to read about some of the personal motivations behind them taking part,” she said. 

“Our patients will benefit from all the money raised and we wish them the best of luck this Sunday.”
