Soft Touch Runners raise £1700 sponsorship in the Leicester Marathon

Thanks to your kind donations we have beaten our £1000 target through this challenge. We are now more than half way towards raising the funding to build a music studio which will be kitted out to give disabled children and young people the opportunity to make and perform music and be part of the cultural life of the city.

Huge thanks to Jaqui Womersley from the Practical Printer who ran for Soft Touch and helped to fundraise.  Not only does she provide a brilliant printing service she is super fit and she spurred Chris on through the final tortuous run up New Walk to finish the half-marathon. As for Joe who has already run 6 full marathons this year to fundraise for Soft Touch and the Youth Music charity – you are a superman!

We are already thinking about doing it again next year.   If anyone would like to join our running team either to run the full or a half-marathon please get in touch with Christina Wigmore –
