SPORT: Children’s Wish Charity appeals for Marathon Runners


Runners of Bournemouth have a chance to help a charity making children’s wishes come true at the town’s Marathon Festival. 

The charity, Round Table Children’s Wish, based in Moordown, relies on donations and sponsorship to help children with life-threatening illnesses aged between four and 17.

They are hoping that runners in the Bournemouth Marathon Festival this year, which takes place over the weekend of October 5th and 6th, will sign up to support the charity and raise valuable funds before the standard entries for the marathon close at 5pm on Wednesday 28th August.

The charity’s fundraising officer Clare Kyrillou said: “It’s always wonderful to see runners supporting us in our home town.

“Our charity relies on local support to make a big difference to families with poorly children.”

Currently the charity is working on granting a number of wishes. One of these is for a Dorset girl with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia whose wish is to visit Disneyland Paris this year.
