Workers from Romford cancer group get all sporty for the cause

Staff from a children’s charity completed the British 10km London Run to raise money for and awareness of the Romford-based cause.

Now staff of the Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund, in Mawney Road, have decided to enter the Kilomathon – a running challenge in the Lee Valley, in east London, on October 28.

A spokesman for the charity said: “This decision complements our plans for creating a range of challenge events as we join in with the spirit of the Olympics this summer.

“From skydiving and zorbing to walking and running the Kilomathon, there are plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained.”
