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.
In 2017, BAFTA members Mike Barwise and Pippa Lambert ran the Virgin Money London Marathon on 24 April and raised a fantastic £3,000 for BAFTA, with a further £800 from Nathan Woods, who was sadly forced dropped out owing to injury.
