  • Laura Anderson - London Marathon 2019

    Tom Wallace

    I'm very excited to be running the London Marathon on 28th April 2019. I'm raising money for two very worthwhile causes and am so grateful to you for your support.

    The first charity is the Whitechapel Mission, which supports homeless people in London. The work that these folks do is amazing - the charity does not have huge resources and donations therefore make a real difference to the facilities and support that they provide to people who are not as lucky as us.

    The Whitechapel Mission is called to serve the men and women caught in the cycles of poverty, hopelessness and dependencies of many kinds, and to see their lives transformed to hope, joy and lasting productivity.

    I'm climbing to 5,895m (that's the top) of Kilimanjaro in June in aid of amazing homeless charity Whitechapel Mission. Apart from the climb itself, it's going to be nine days without wifi, espresso or hot showers, as we sleep in tents the whole way up and down.
