Virtual London Marathon place for Adoption Matters

Adoption Matters is a children’s charity and voluntary adoption agency established in 1947.

Our aim is to help children find secure, loving families that can best meet their long term needs and help them reach their full potential

We recruit, train and prepare families seeking to adopt and offer them ongoing support and development throughout the adoption process and for as long as they need it. We have also been providing a support and guidance service for adopted children, adults and birth families for over 70 years. We cover the whole of the North of England, North Wales, Stoke, Stafford and Shropshire.

We have just a couple of places left for the virtual 2021 Virgin Money London Marathon taking place on Sunday 3 October 2021. If you are interested in one of these places then please let us know as soon as possible fundraising@adoptionmatters.org

The registration fee for each of these places is £20 and we would ask for a minimum sponsorship of £150. To find out more information please go to: Virtual Virgin Money London Marathon | Adoption Matters
