Comment Email Print
¬†Staff at Channel 4 are going to run in the British 10k London Run for the Cardinal Hume Centre The Channel 4 team, together with runners from the centre will be seeking sponsorship for the challenging ten-kilometre long run, which takes place on Saturday 2nd July. The run, which attracts both experienced athletes and novices, will start at Hyde Park Corner and pass along many of London's most historic and beautiful land marks including the National Gallery and Westminster Abbey, before finishing at Whitehall, just past Downing Street. Cathy Corcoran, OBE and Director of the Cardinal Hume Centre, said: "We're absolutely thrilled that Channel 4 are joining us and taking part in this 10k Run ≠ this is a really exciting year for the Centre as we're celebrating our twentieth anniversary. I'm sure this will be a great way to raise both our profile and assist in our fund raising but just as importantly it will be an enormous amount of fun!" Nick Toon, Director of Corporate Relationships at Channel 4 and a participant in the race, said: "I'm delighted to be able to support the Cardinal Hume Centre through this run as it is a worthwhile organisation that does amazing work. It's going to be a challenge but I've got lots of people sponsoring me so I want to do well. I think everybody should try and sponsor a runner because they'll be donating money to a really worthy cause and to an organisation that's at the heart of the community in which we all live and work." To sponsor a runner please contact Dov on 020 7222 1602 or e-mail The Centre was founded in 1986 and works with homeless young people, badly housed families and local communities to access accommodation, support, advice, training and education, is based at one location in Central London a few minutes walk from the Channel Four Building. It has recently completed an extensive renovation project, and an improvement of the facilities and services it provides. It is now embarking on a twentieth anniversary appeal in order to raise the funds required to sustain this new level of service.
