We've secured a charity ballot place in 2018's Virgin Money London Marathon. Amanda Parker has taken up the challenge to run in aid of our Silver Jubilee appeal. You can donate online and help raise money for much loved local services for carers.

Amanda's Story

Running the London Marathon has always been a dream, one that I wasn't sure I would ever fulfil. However the dream has become a reality and 22nd April 2018 I will be pounding my feet on the streets of London for 26.2 miles. So this winter will be filled with training to get marathon fit for the big day!

I have the honour of running the marathon to raise money for a wonderful local charity; Northamptonshire Carers who work to support carers, which include a parent supporting a child with a learning disability, an adult supporting a parent with dementia, a husband caring for his wife who has a physical disability or a school-child who is relied on by their parent who has a mental health condition. Northamptonshire Carers provide support for Carers in similar roles and many more.

Silver Jubilee Appeal

2017 marks 25 years of Northamptonshire Carers. Quarter of a century in supporting local Carers. The Silver Jubilee Appeal campaign is to raise £500,000 to purchase holiday homes to give Carers a much needed relaxing break for the next quarter of a century.
