Robert, Challenge Event Fundraiser 2017:
“I was lucky enough to get a place to run the London Marathon and chose to fundraise for Toynbee Hall as I had previously volunteered with the organisation and had seen firsthand the great work it does.
I really enjoyed running the London Marathon – the sense of achievement at the end was great, and definitely worth the pain along the way! However, what really left its mark on me was the sense of community amongst the runners, as well as the amazing support given by the crowds. The sense of goodwill from the local community in the outskirts of London was also really heartening, with many people coming out of their homes to encourage the runners and offer us drinks and food.
I’d really recommend doing a fundraising challenge for Toynbee Hall – the fundraising team can give you support and ideas to make the whole process easier and more enjoyable.”
Clare and family, Challenge Event Fundraisers 2014: “The Santa Run was a brilliant way to support Toynbee Hall and have a fun morning as a family. My son loved waving to supporters and my daughter slept through the whole thing, waking just as we crossed the finishing line! Despite the rain, there was a fantastic atmosphere and we’d certainly do it again another year. Toynbee provided all the information and support we needed to complete the event and encourage our friends and family to support us.”
