Virgin Money London Marathon 2021
This Sunday the 3rd of October, 20 intrepid troops from London District will be running the Virgin Media London Marathon in aid of Tickets For Troops. In addition, our own Lt Col Elisabeth Roberts of our advisory board will be running virtually!
We are delighted by the return of the marathon in person and on the streets of London, creating an inspiring atmosphere full of encouragement and support for all taking part – we dare you to head down and not feel heartened!
This famous race is the largest annual fundraising event in the world and the money you donate makes a massive difference to TFT and helps us continue to provide tickets to fantastic events for our members.
The 2021 marathon is particularly special for us as this year as we recover from the issues caused by the pandemic, your support means more to us than ever before. In the last 12 years we have distributed over 1.6 million tickets to the Armed Forces. We have given troops the opportunity to attend everything from football games to big name comedians to West End productions, stadium tours to music festivals. Most recently 40 troops and their loved ones attended the world premiere of James Bond: No Time To Die! We've truly been blown away by the generosity of all of our donors, who continue to offer such amazing opportunities to members of the Armed Forces to thank them for their service and give them the chance to create amazing memories. We hope to be able to continue supporting our Armed Forces with pride for many years to come.
