Support our Runner

in the 2020 London Marathon

 As part of our 2020 fund-raising, a friend of the charity, Charlie Stannett has agreed to attempt to complete the Virgin Money London marathon on our behalf. Stannett says he won’t be fast – he turns 65 in 2020.  And just to make things a little bit more difficult for himself, he’s going to warm up for London by also doing the Marathon de Paris earlier the same month. And, as he’s primarily a triathlete with Ipswich triathlon club, he does most of his training on a stationary bike - in his shed. Oh, and he’s coming back from having had a heart attack in 2018! 

Please support him and us and donate to his fundraising page

He is running so that we can continue to run our popular workshops for schools here at the Soanes Centre. Please give generously so that all future pupils in Tower Hamlets and beyond can learn about the joy and importance of nature even though they are growing up in the inner city.
