The Athlone Trust is a small but vital UK charity that provides financial assistance to adopted children with special needs, allowing them to get the help they could not otherwise access. Sadly we have more requests for help than we have funds to meet them, so every penny really does help and is hugely appreciated.
The British 10k London Run has already come round again! Connor Burford, Ramona Hux & Sabrina Goran – all from Irwin Mitchell LLP - return from last year's team, and they are joined by Anthony Duhig (also from Irwin Mitchell), PhiIlipp Kunick (Curzon Advisers Ltd) and James Hircombe. Their JustGiving page can be found HERE. We are hugely grateful to them for their time & effort & hope you will support them generously! :-)

We once again have some admirable and intrepid souls taking part in the British 10K London Run to raise money for the trust - hooray!
You can support the lovely Connor Burford, Ramona Hux, Sabrina Goran and Kate Dansie from Irwin Mitchell on their joint JustGiving page or donate to Michael Jarvis and his brilliant team members, Thomas Manning and Archie May on their page here. Better still, why not go the whole hog and support both teams? ;-)

We had six runners in this year's Tenth Anniversary Asics British 10K London Run: Sarah Deane, Christian Taylor and John Darwin all strapped on their running shoes on our behalf once more, while Chris Tagg and new trustee Mohaia Amin took to the track for us for the first time! As always, we were extremely grateful to all of our runners for taking part in the largest fundraising event of our year. 12th July 2009
The 2009 Asics British 10k London Run came round again and this year the trust had five runners taking part: John Darwin, Tony Smart, Sarah Asher, Lena Schmidt and Christian Taylor.

We are very grateful indeed and hope that their efforts will continue to be rewarded over the next few weeks via Justgiving! 6th October 2008
Each of our four runners successfully completed the British 10k run, despite the terrible weather on the day - many congratulations to them all! Together, they have now raised over £3,000 for the Trust, for which we are extremely grateful indeed. 6th July 2008
