Tom & Sarah’s Marathon effort for BOST

Tom Heys 2015 - BOSTSarah driver 2015 marathon

Local resident Tom Heys will be one of 30,000 brave runners in Sunday’s London Marathon, and is running dressed as a tree! Tom, who made his own costume said, “I may set a world record for fastest marathon runner dressed as a plant. I will be competing against a cactus and suspect they have some solid running skills. So I have stiff completion.” Tom is also a BOST trustee and hopes his efforts on the day will raise both money & awareness for our current appeal to create a new gardenson the site of Crossbones Graveyard on Redcross Way.

For Sarah, one of our gardening volunteers, it is her first ever marathon.  She has kindly decided to run to raise money to support our work to create and maintain green open spaces in the local area. We are very grateful to both of their support. Please click on the links below to donate.

Good Luck to our two fabulous runners !

BUT this is just the start and we still need to raise a grand total of £30,000 this year in order to create a truly beautiful space for Londoners to use on this amazing site.

So please visit our Buzz Bank page (link below) and give as little as £10 and receive special rewards in return for our support.
