There are three different bond schemes operated by London Marathon Events Ltd. These are:

A Virgin Money London Marathon Golden Bond gives the charity that holds it five guaranteed places in the event each year. This scheme has been fully subscribed for many years and the waiting list is closed for the foreseeable future.

Rebecca moving on

26 May 2018

After 4+ years with us as Benefits and Support Adviser, Rebecca has taken the decision to move on to pastures new.

During her time with the charity Rebecca has helped many people with benefits claims/advice and general support, and she will be sorely missed. Trustees and staff of Narcolepsy UK have said a well deserved Thank You on behalf of the charity and all those people she helped along the way. We wish her well in all things.

Please note the Helpline remains open, operated by staff and dedicated volunteers.
