Guaranteed gold bond charity places

If you were lucky enough to secure your own place in the Virgin London Marathon 2018 through the ballot and would like to raise funds for the pets in our care, we’d love for you to join Team Blue Cross. There's no minimum fundraising pledge and you will get the full support and benefits of the team. Please see below for more details.
