They’ve put more than 200 miles under their collective belts – and now they need a little help from you.
Eight members of the British Racing Drivers’ Club ran last weekend’s London Marathon with the aim of raising £50,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. At time of writing they are 85 per cent there, with nearly £43,000 raised.
You can help them boost their total even further and meet their £50,000 target by visiting JustGiving.com here and making a donation.
The competitors included Jamie Campbell-Walter, Peter Dumbreck, Stuart Hall, Richard Westbrook, Jonny Kane, Robin Liddell, James Matthews and Andy Meyrick. Some extremely competitive times just outside the three-hour mark resulted for several runners – you can check everyone’s time at the bottom of this post.
To help with fundraising the BRDC and its runners hosted a charity lunch at Carpenters’ Hall, London on Friday April 15, attended by John Watson, Mark Blundell, Johnny Herbert and Derek Warwick plus Cystic Fibrosis patron and TV presenter Ben Shephard.
An auction, led by James Knight at Bonhams, a silent auction and pledges combined to raise £25,000 towards the total.
