The 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon Christmas Promotion


Fundraisers who start earlier raise more. It’s a fact, we’ve checked.

As the official fundraising partner of the Virgin Money London Marathon, we’re thanking runners who started their fundraising early by giving every single one of them a free £20 Virgin Wines gift voucher… And the chance to win one of 600 cases of wine!

Every week until 18 December, we’re giving London Marathon fundraisers the chance to win 1 of 150 cases of wine, just for fundraising!

Each and every donation on a London Marathon fundraising page will count as an entry into the competition.

If you’re running the London Marathon, don’t miss out; get your page set up today!

Terms and conditions apply.

And don’t forget – as a London Marathon fundraiser, this isn’t your only chance to win with Virgin Money Giving…

    Great idea and incentive to start your fund raising early! Don’t delay, whatever the cause you are raising money for, the earlier you start fund raising the more you will collect.
