Lauriston Lights

Follow up message from Lauriston Lights:

"Lauriston Lights runs summer camp for eleven year olds from disadvantaged backgrounds from the borough of Newham, making the transition from primary to secondary schools. It is run by current or recently graduated university students, in which we aim to raise the aspirations, communication, character and intellectual skills of the children. We've run two camps for two summers now (2013 and 2014) and are in the process of expanding.

We are running the Wimbledon Half Marathon to try to raise enough money to run two camps this coming summer, rather than just one, so we can make a positive impact on double the amount of children. Any support, either as as runner, or by sponsoring the team, would be hugely appreciated. Do check out our to find out more! Thank you."

Crystal Palace 10k

Message from Age UK:

I’m contacting you from Age UK – we’ve a 10k in Crystal Palace Stadium on 22 March.

Its £16 for UKA members (it’s UKA registered), and is chip-timed with medals and goodies on the finish line. It’s great for PBs, as well as being an accessible run for beginners. There’s also a Junior 2k, so it’s great for families and has a really good atmosphere. All in all, a good deal!
