Bagpuss & friends surpass all expectations at the London Landmarks half marathon 2021
On August 1st, Bagpuss & Friends – (Hospices of Hope’sfundraisers), surpassed all expectations on their 13.1 mile run through the captivating route of the London Landmarks event. Along the route, Bagpuss & Friends (amid thousands of runners) met famous London Landmarks; were immersed in celebration on the Hero Highway, Clapping Waterloo Bridge, Trolley Conga, LLHM Memory Lane – and entertained by London’s wonderful culture, community groups, performers and volunteers. They were, of course, supported enthusiastically by Hospices of Hope and their bright pink ‘Team Bagpuss’ cheer station.
Anna Perolls, Interim CEO at Hospices of Hope, said: “Hospices of Hope extends a huge thank you to Bagpuss, our runners and their sponsors for their wonderful support for the Charity’s great cause of raising funds for terminally and seriously-ill patients who seek respite in our hospices in South East Europe. The Charity relies totally on donations and we are lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with Bagpuss as our mascot for our children’s wing in Romania. All funds raised from this event will benefit children with rare and life limiting illnesses in our care.”
