Lawscot Foundation to benefit from London Marathon runner’s bid
The Lawscot Foundation will benefit from cash raised by a London Marathon runner for the first time this year.
Sarah Johnston, 39, is completing the 26.2 mile course to raise funds for the social mobility charity, which supports law students who have faced obstacles whilst growing up.
Last year the charity gave financial and mentoring support to 17 aspiring solicitors from less-advantaged backgrounds from all over Scotland and aims to be able to help even more this year.
Darren Kerr, from the Lawscot Foundation, said: “This is the first year we’ve had a fundraising space for the London Marathon and we’re very excited to be part of such a major fundraising event. We’re glad we can help Sarah tick a marathon off her bucket list and can’t thank her enough for her dedicated support.
“It costs us £12,000 to fund one student through their time at university and every penny raised will be used to better the lives of less-advantaged students.”
You can support Sarah by donating on her Virgin Money Giving page.
