This year we've got an amazing team taking on the London Marathon on 2nd October to raise money for our hospitals. Joining #TeamBWHC are....

Sharon Curtis-White

Sharon Curtis-White is running the London Marathon in memory of her brother"Running the London Marathon this year will be both special and very emotional. Although I have run a lot of marathons (London will be number 74), I have never fundraised before, I have never felt truly passionate about a charity before. Losing my most beloved brother so suddenly has left me feeling lost, raising money for Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity has given me a sense of purpose and a feeling of accountability with my training."

Roger and Pauline Bingham are running the London Marathon

Roger and Pauline Bingham

"Why do we run? Roger has run marathons since 1983, Pauline from 2010. We do it for the sense of achievement, and in gratitude to God that we still can in our mid-70s. Why London? Because of it’s great atmosphere and we get in as “Good for Age”.

"Why the charity? To thank the NHS and in particular Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre for their great work, especially in caring for our church Pastor’s daughter when she was critically ill with a rare form of Leukaemia last year. She is currently free of cancer and gradually regaining strength."

Lesley Angell

Lesley is running the Virtual London Marathon"My reason for taking part in the Virtual London Marathon is because my son has had genetics blood tests through the hospitals, even though he was seen in Bath. Also my daughter has had dentist treatment so I wanted to give something back and to also give myself a challenge."
