The London Marathon takes place on April 22nd this year and a runner, Danny Watkins, has agreed to run for Waltham Forest Thuso in South Africa.
We have been contributing to Thuto Lesedi School’s feeding programme for destitute children. A daily lunch is provided for those who come to school hungry.
We are seeking sponsors for Danny’s run so we can continue to help with the lunch programme. He ran the London Marathon a few years ago and did very well. He also runs several marathons and half marathons every year and always finishes with a good time. If you would like to sponsor him for the London Event please click here to access the printable (PDF) version of the Sponsorship Form.
Our chair Mmapula Tladi-Small will be visiting Thuto Lesedi Secondary School in December to review the feeding and Sponsorship programmes with the Headteacher. She will go over each sponsored student’s progress and wellbeing with their teachers. She will also work with the Headteacher to select additional students to sponsor in the new school year in January. Mmapula will report back on the above projects in the New Year and will hopefully bring existing students’ end of year reports and letters to their sponsors.
