Gracie’s Marathon fundraiser

On Sunday 23rd April, Gracie will be running the London Marathon to raise money for Islington Giving. Having successfully completed the Brighton Marathon in 2015, and flying the flag for Islington on the south coast, Gracie is putting the finishing touches to her training before the big event.

Gracie has a long-standing relationship with Islington Giving and the borough. An integral part of the team at the Upper Street branch of family-run estate agent Currell, Gracie is also the mother of two young children. Fitting her training around her other commitments is tough, but, as Gracie says, “running 26.2 miles is nowhere near the challenge some people in our community are facing on a daily basis.”

You can show your support for Gracie by visiting her London Marathon fundraising page and making a donation to Islington Giving today. Every penny of your donation will be awarded as grant funding for local voluntary organisations working to tackle poverty and inequality in Islington.

Gracie and the team at Currell have supported Islington Giving since 2014 by fundraising, donating and providing support with our events and publicity. With a close and daily connection with the challenging circumstances faced by Islington residents, their support offers a continuous example of how locally focussed businesses can give back to their community.

If you work in or own a business locally, and would like to discuss how you can support Islington Giving, please call 020 7288 6940, or email mail@islingtongiving.org.uk.
