Toy-Trust-480Robert has always wanted to run the London Marathon, but it is notoriously difficult to secure a place, particularly for runners not based in the UK and Eire. The Toy Trust had secured a place in the race, but as the deadline approached, no runner had come forward to claim the place.After a chance conversation at Nuremberg Toy Fair, Robert stepped forward to take it on. He told Toy World: “I will be enjoying every minute of the experience and I would like to thank everyone at the BTHA and the Toy Trust for giving me the opportunity to run in this magnificent event.”

Robert is currently just shy of his £1,500 goal and any further support to help him reach his target for the Toy Trust would be appreciated. You can donate at Robert’s Just Giving page:
