Alun Cairns MP is to run for Macmillan Cancer and Atal Y Fro (Vale Womens Aid) in his 9th edition of the London Marathon which takes place on the 3rd October.

Atal y Fro – a Barry based domestic violence charity, has sadly seen first-hand the impact of the rise in domestic violence over lockdown. Its 24-hour service helps families break the cycle of domestic violence and abuse.

While Macmillan Cancer Support have also faced pressures as a result of Covid and are leading a campaign to ensure every cancer patient receives the right treatment and support.

After numerous cancellations, the Marathon is set return to the streets of London for the first time in 30 months as Alun Cairns aims to beat his personal fundraising target of £10,000.

Alun commented, “I want to raise as much money as I can for these two fantastic charities, I have raised almost £60,000 through the years and I hope I can increase this yet further.”

“Macmillan Cancer have also assured me that the money raised will go directly in supporting those affected by cancer right here in the Vale. Having meet representatives from both of the charities to learn of their incredibly work in the Vale, I am inspired and determined to raise as much as I can.”

Richard Pugh, Head of Partnerships for Macmillan Cancer Support in Wales said, “More than 98% of Macmillan’s funding comes directly from donations, but we have seen a huge fall in our fundraising income as a direct result of Covid-19. It is fantastic to see such a flagship event as the London Marathon once again taking place and we are very proud indeed to be its charity of the year. We would like to say a huge thanks to Alun for taking on those gruelling 26 miles on our behalf. Every penny and every mile really does count, as Macmillan and people with cancer have never needed the public’s help more than we do right now.”
