Marathon effort is child’s play for charity

A children’s charity threw a post race party to congratulate
London marathon runners.

The event took place at Church
House Conference Centre
in Westminster to celebrate the success of those
running the Virgin Money London Marathon 2015 in aid of the Children’s Society.

More than 80 runners took part in the annual race for the charity
which works to support vulnerable children in England and Wales.

Natalie
Tarrant, regional fundraising development
manager for the Children’s Society, said: “Our post-race party is an
opportunity to thank the dedicated team, who have been training hard to run the
26.2 miles and raising vital funds to support our work. Through our
campaigning, commitment and care, we are determined to give every child in the
country the greatest possible chance in life and the efforts of those taking
part in the Virgin Money London Marathon play a great part in helping us
achieve this. Church House is a perfect venue for this event, as it’s relatively
close to the finish line, and a perfect sized room for accommodating all our
team runners and their family and friends who are keen to support them on the
day.”

Robin
Parker, general manager at Church House Conference Centre, said: “I have great
admiration for all those who trained to take part in the Virgin Money London
Marathon. Their efforts should be commended and we were happy to host the
Children’s Society’s post-race party which recognises their achievements. Their
fundraising efforts all go towards a very worthwhile cause.”
