Henshaws Heroes take on the London Marathon 2016

We are delighted to announce that a group of incredible runners have completed the London Marathon 2016 on behalf of Team Henshaws!

Tackling the London Marathon is no mean feat – consisting of a whopping 26.2 miles of running or walking, and taking months of training to prepare for.

We can’t thank all our Team Henshaws runners enough for their amazing achievement, and to everyone who has sponsored them so far. Even though the marathon has now taken place, there is still time to donate to their fundraising pages – links to some of their fundraising pages are listed below.

The money that our runners have raised is invaluable for supporting people living with sight loss and a range of other disabilities to achieve their ambitions and live life to the full. To find out more about the amazing stories that have happened thanks to fundraising, stories from around Henshaws can be found in our blog.

We can't do it without you
