Charlotte Carnell, events fund-raiser at Galloway’s, said: “Every year, runners supporting Galloway’s in the Virgin London Marathon raise thousands for local blind and partially sighted people. We only have a limited window of opportunity to fill our last remaining place.

“The marathon is a fantastic event to work on, supporting people not only to raise an incredible amount of money, but to accomplish a challenge of a lifetime. We offer full training support, a running vest and the chance to join an amazing team of runners. We only have one remaining place up for grabs. Our fundraising target for our places is £1,800.

“We offer support right from the moment people sign up, both in terms of fund-raising and with their training, we’d be delighted to talk to anybody who’s been thinking of running the London Marathon.
