London Marathon

FInd out about our involvement in the London Marathon. 

Each year, BAFTA receives a small number of London Marathon places as part of the Duke’s Charities Forum and HRH The Duke of Cambridge’s patronage of BAFTA.

Virgin Money London Marathon

Our runners fundraise to support a series of special Children’s Hospice screenings for children with life-limited conditions and their families throughout the UK. These families rarely have opportunities to spend quality time together due to the stresses, both medical and monetary, placed on them and as a result of their child’s illness. Equally, some families do not feel comfortable taking their child to the cinema as they are concerned their presence may be disruptive to other cinema goers. 

BAFTA hopes it can give these families a very special experience and treasured memory that they otherwise would find extremely difficult to access. We are grateful to anyone who donates to our 2016 runners and enormously grateful to the runners themselves!
