Here is the latest blog update from Virgin Balloon Flights runner, freelance designer Adam Fleetwood.
“I’m pleased to say that sponsorship for the Virgin London Marathon is rolling in nicely, friends, family, Virgin Balloon Flights colleagues and local businesses are all making kind donations which is fantastic.
I’ve recently been selling sponsorship space on my Virgin Unite running vest and two of my very generous customers, Willows Dental (£200) and Telling Architects (£100) have taken two of the three spaces which has really helped me get close to my target of £2000.00. I’m currently at £1921.25 including gift aid.
There is still one last space on my running vest for any company that wishes to get some great exposure and at the same time give to a great cause. If you’re interested or know anyone that might be, please get in touch at email@example.com or call 07970 821266.
Please help me keep the donations rolling in for Birmingham Children’s Hospital. It will make running the 26.2 miles all the more worthwhile!
To make a donation visit my Virgin Money Giving Sponsorship page.

Adam Fleetwood, freelance creative designer to Virgin Balloon Flights jumped at the chance of applying for one of Virgin Unite’s London Marathon places late last year. After some careful consideration of how to win over the votes at Virgin, Adam put together a short movie, which you can watch on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sx2UjRQyeI
After being granted a place (yippee), Adam set his mind to training, fundraising and a bit of blogging along the way to keep us all up to date with what he’s doing. There are a number of blogs up already, just click the image below to take you to the page and find out what’s been going on.
