Livability at The 2013 Virgin London Marathon

April 11 2013

Livability is taking part in the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday 21st April 2013, to raise awareness and much-needed funds for our on-going work with disabled and disadvantaged people. The London Marathon is the biggest annual fundraising event in the world and what helps make this event so special is the friendship and support that you gain from being part of a charity team. runningmarathon2012

We want to say a big THANK YOU to all those supporting Livability in the 2013 Virgin London Marathon, whether you have signed up to run or whether you are coming along to cheer on our runners in the marathon.

On the day we’re asking all our volunteers to come along with a loud ‘cheering voice’, from 9am to the Livability cheering point at our venue ‘The Space’ (see below for directions). ‘The Space’ is a performing arts centre based in a converted church in the Isle of Dogs, East London. There will be a café, called Hubbub as well as a barbecue (with burgers at around £5), music and a very celebratory atmosphere for all Livability supporters and passers-by. Feel free to bring with you a picnic or snacks also.

Livability will be positioned outside the front of the restaurant, so look out for our purple banners on your arrival. We expect to see our runners go past the cheering point anytime from 11am, and we will remain at the cheering point until around 2pm. We will provide all Livability supporters with water, snacks, balloons, T-shirts and wigs to make as much of a purple spectacle as possible! The day will be fun-packed with lots of cheering to support our Livability runners; whilst also enjoying some food, drink, music and a party-like atmosphere at our venue.

Details of how to get to ‘The Space’ are below. We will be there from 7.30am but we ask our volunteer cheerers to arrive around 9am.
