Fundraising at the London Marathon from the comfort of a pub

Fundraising at the London Marathon from the comfort of a pub

The runners in tomorrow’s Virgin Money London Marathon won’t be the only people raising funds for charity. Spare a thought for all those who will chip in as they watch the Marathon from the comfort of a London pub.

According to the London Marathon’s owners, 55 central London pubs are putting on events during the Marathon. Of these, 26 are organising events for a particular charity.

So here is UK Fundraising’s guide to charities and their pubs at the 2015 Virgin London Marathon.
