Phil Leney is lacing up his running shoes in preparation for his first ever marathon at the London Marathon next month, in aid of Essex children’s cancer charity, Gold Geese. 

The charity provides practical and emotional support to families of children and young people fighting cancer in the Southend and Basildon areas, with support ranging from funding for mental health therapy and food shop vouchers to toys, weekend trips away and practical help with travel to and from hospital.

“I’m so pleased to have the opportunity to support this fantastic charity as part of this personal challenge; anything we can do to support Gold Geese and the brilliant work they do in our local communities and help raise awareness for the organisation,” says Phil.

If you would like to support Phil’s marathon effort:

  • A donation of £20 could provide toys or comfy new pyjamas for a child with cancer staying in hospital

  • £45 funds an hour’s counselling session for a bereaved family

  • £280 funds a memorial bench for a child who has passed away

  • £400 funds a big end of treatment celebration for friends and family

  • £700 covers the cost of a weekend away for a family to offer respite
