Marathon effort from Ellie!

6th September 2021 | Category: Community, General, Latest News

Plymouth’s three major sports clubs have teamed up to run this year’s Virtual London Marathon for well-known local charity, Friends and Families of Special Children.

When the charity secured three places for the event, they approached Plymouth Argyle, Plymouth Albion and Plymouth City Patriots for runners – and all were more than happy to help with our very Ellie Venables representing Albion.

Starting with a lap around Albion’s ground at Brickfields, then running around the Pavilions, home of The Patriots, before a decent tour of the city and finishing at Home Park this really is an exciting challenge for the clubs and the city.

The charity’s CEO, Tim Tod, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled that Plymouth’s biggest sports clubs are teaming up with Friends and Families of Special Children for the Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon. We’re keen to see which club can raise the most money for our charity! But competitiveness aside, everyone is running towards the same goal, and the actual winners will be our 1,700+ local families, with the funds raised going directly towards our support and activities programmes. We hope the fantastic fans of Plymouth’s biggest sports clubs will get behind their runner and donate, and in doing so become supporters of Friends and Families of Special Children.”

We hope all our supporters will get behind Ellie for this great cause.
