We are proud to announce that Banham Group is sponsoring The Marsden March for the fourth year in a row, taking place on March 4th, 2018.
What is the Marsden March?
The Marsden March is a sponsored walk between the Royal Marsden’s hospitals in Chelsea and Sutton. Walkers can choose between two available routes, a shorter 5-mile walk which is ideal for families and younger children, or a 14-mile walk for the more adventurous and seasoned walkers.
On the way, you will have the chance to walk through various areas ranging from the scenic Wimbledon Common and King George’s Playing fields to the more busy and lively Putney High Street, all the way to the finish line situated at the Royal Marsden’s hospital in Sutton, where a party with BBQ and music will be in full swing for all the walkers to enjoy.
Why is the Marsden March important?
All the proceeds from the walk go towards further advancing the battle against cancer and improving the lives of millions, not just in the UK but all around the world as well. Over the last six years, this event has raised over £8.2 million to help revolutionise cancer treatment and build a future beyond cancer.
The Royal Marsden holds a special place in the heart of many of its walkers as it does to many of us here at Banham. Not only are we sponsoring this special event, but we’ll have more than 100 of our own walkers participating in the Marsden March.
In 2017, team Banham raised an amazing total of £44,000.
Banham Group is a proud sponsor of the Marsden March
“Banham are very proud to be sponsoring and taking part in The Marsden March for the fourth year running. The March is a fantastic day bringing individuals, families and friends together to raise funds and awareness for such an important cause. All the funds raised on the day for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity help the hospitals to continue their outstanding treatment and care for patients affected by this terrible disease. We at Banham have several staff members that have direct links to The Royal Marsden through care and treatment that they have provided to members of our staff or their families; this places the cause very closely to our hearts.
“The March is a fantastic day bringing individuals, families and friends together to raise funds and awareness for such an important cause..” – Charles Hallatt, Banham Group Chairman
