EEF Venues’ Broadway House in Westminster hosted a post 2015 Virgin London Marathon event at the venue on 26th April to welcome participants running in the marathon in aid of Sparks, a charity that raises money to fund pioneering children’s medical research.
The charity supports clinicians and scientists in finding cures and treatments to help the 1 in 30 children born in the UK with a condition which may affect them for life.
Amanda Sutton, venue manager at Broadway House, said: “There was a warm welcome awaiting the participants, their families and friends at Broadway House where they were able to take rest and refreshment after the event and share their experience with us. We replenished their batteries with delicious finger food and plenty of juice and water and had rooms set aside for massage areas for the participants.”
Todd Harris, challenge events executive with Sparks, said: “We had 75 runners participating in the marathon this year for Team Sparks and we expect to raise in excess of £165,000. In amongst those 75 runners we had former Olympian, Ian Stark; Phil Brown, current Southend United Manager, and Sarah-Jane Mee, Sky Sports Presenter. This is a major fund raising event for us and we were delighted to have had the support of EEF Venues at Broadway House.”
