Jamie Theakston’s “Long Walk to London” visits Marlow

| |

Heart radio’s Jamie Theakston is in the middle of a challenge to complete 7 marathons in 7 days walking from Cardiff to London!  He will cover the 182.7 miles between the 28th September–5th October.  In doing so, he aiming to raise £50,000 for a charity which helps disadvantaged children & young people.

On Tue 2nd October, Jamie will complete his marathon for that day on Marlow Bridge!  After arrival, he will be given a much needed sports massage by Mark Skoyles of Marlow Sports Therapy.

The latest we have been advised is that he will arrive 6.00-6.15pm, but of course there might be some flexibility in this. We will try to keep you updated.  

On the fundraising page, Jamie says “To say that I’m a little apprehensive is an understatement. Even walking one marathon is a challenge, but doing that every day for seven days in a row is a massively daunting prospect that will push me to my absolute limits. It’s going to be incredibly tough but I’ve been training hard and I’m keeping my fingers crossed I don’t pick up a blister on day one!”

Charitable aims, and how to donate

Jamie is seeking donations for Global’s Make Some Noise – a national charity that funds projects helping disadvantaged children & young people, and thereby “making a noise” to give a voice to smaller charities which can struggle to get heard.

100% of your donation will go to Global’s Make Some Noise. Some networks may charge you a standard network rate to use this donation service. If you’re under 16, then ask the bill payer’s permission before texting. Full Ts&Cs can be found at makesomenoise.com
