A group of dedicated runners are fundraising for Learn to Love to Read by running the Royal Parks Half Marathon, which will take place amid London's most famous landmarks on Sunday 8th October 2023.

Learn to Love to Read is a local charity, working in the London borough of Wandsworth, that supports children who are finding learning to read challenging or who are at risk of starting school poorly prepared for learning to read. Your donations will help us continue and expand this important work, which is needed more than ever in the aftermath of Covid.

Please consider sponsoring our runners and supporting Learn to Love to Read. Together, we can make a real difference in the lives of children in our community. Thank you for your support.
