St Francis Hospice, based in Havering-atte-Bower, calls on London Marathon entrants to join its team in 2013

A Havering hospice is calling on registered marathon runners to join its team.

St Francis Hospice, based in Havering-atte-Bower, is inviting anyone who has a place in the London Marathon – which will take place on April 21 next year – to swell its numbers. Currently 20 people are signed up to support the hospice.

The total raised by this year’s team was �80,000.

Hospice events manager Lauren Josman said: “St Francis Hospice offers plenty of support to runners before and after the event and we’d welcome you as part of our team. The money you raise for St Francis Hospice is spent in your community, providing specialist care to people with cancer or other life-limiting illness when they need it.”

Runners will receive a running vest and training and dietary tips.
