For those of you that didn`t know James is running the London Marathon this year to support two Charites that we have supported since we changed our name from Lesters to James Gesner Estate Agents in 2015.
So far, we have raised over £10,000 for Footsteps who are based in Dorchester on Thames and in 2017 we are looking to double this by raising £10,000. This will be made up of the marathon target of £5,000 split between Footsteps and AMMF and the Charity golf day held at Hadden hill on July 14th this year.
Footsteps Foundation provides financial support to families attending the Footsteps Centre in Dorchester-on-Thames. The Footsteps Centre provides intensive therapy for disabled children with neurological disorders such as Cerebral Palsy. Children who have these conditions have problems with mobility and will often be unable to sit, stand, crawl and walk. With intensive therapy at Footsteps, using a unique piece of equipment called `the spider` to facilitate exercises and strengthen core muscles, children have reached amazing milestones.
For every £50 we raise we can offer a child an hour of therapy and £150 funds and entire day.
Every pound goes to help families receive the best therapy for their child and to support that child in reaching their full potential. Charity number 1123440
AMMF is the UK`s only cholangiocarcinoma charity. Our main aims are to raise the awareness of cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer), to provide information to those who need it, and to support specialised research teams in their work to find the causes, methods of earlier diagnosis and treatments for this devastating disease.
Charity number 1091915
