Papworth Trust Envoy Phil Packer Urges People To Take Part In 2011 London Marathon For The Charity

December 9, 2010

I have just received the press release below from Kerry Atkinson at the Papworth Trust.

For the first time, East of England disability charity Papworth Trust has been awarded five places in the 2011 Virgin London Marathon and needs you to take on the challenge.

The Trust is inviting entries from people who think they’ve got what it takes. Here’s your chance to get fit, complete a challenge through some of London’s most iconic sights, and raise money for a fantastic cause.

In addition to a guaranteed place with entry fees paid by Papworth Trust, each runner will receive a fundraising support pack and a personal thank you letter from our envoy Phil Packer MBE. To run in support of Papworth Trust, entrants will need to commit to raising only £2,000 in sponsorship.

Envoy for Papworth Trust and founder of the British Inspiration Trust, Phil Packer MBE, said: “I am delighted that Papworth Trust has been awarded five places for next year’s Virgin London Marathon. This is a super cause and I know how much those selected will enjoy this thoroughly enjoyable and truly memorable event. Your help will help them to support more disabled people.”

Papworth Trust is a leading disability charity supporting over 17,000 people each year. In Cambridge and Huntingdon, the Trust has an Employment, Learning for Life and Work, Vocational Rehabilitation and Housing service. Papworth Trust relies on income raised through events such as the Marathon. Your involvement will help the Trust to help more disabled people.

Places are limited but if you’d like more information or to request one of Papworth Trust’s places, contact Mandy Barker, Fundraising Manager, on 01480 357200 or email
