Amber are delighted to announce that we were successful in the charity ballot for the Virgin London Marathon which is due to take place on Sunday 3 October 2021.
We are now inviting interested people to apply for our one and only place and fundraise for our vital work housing and supporting disadvantaged young people grappling with homelessness and long term unemployment.
If you are interested in running for Amber this year then please email Fundraising Manager [email protected] to receive a short application form. The form needs to be returned by 31st March.
Kelsey said “This year’s event promises to be a very special one as it will be first live London Marathon to welcome non-elite runners in 18 months. We are looking for a very special person, with a strong commitment to our cause to fly the Amber flag at this event. As a charity supporting homeless young people, we rely on fundraising income to fund our work helping young people to leave their troubled pasts behind them for good and move on to a bright independent future – a job, place on a training programme or college and most importantly, a safe place to call home. So if you want to attempt your first ever marathon or are a seasoned runner looking to achieve a personal best, do get in touch with us”.
