Hertfordshire Community Foundation is encouraging people to sign up for this year's London Marathon to support the work it does in the county.

With the help of donations Hertfordshire Community Foundation provides grants and support to the small grassroot charities and community groups based in Hertfordshire. Every penny it raises stays in Hertfordshire and goes towards helping the most vulnerable residents in the county.

The London Marathon is on Sunday, October 3, and there will also be a virtual event for participants all over the world.

A spokesperson for the Foundation said: "We are lucky enough to have charity golden bond places for the London Marathon, we also have places for this year’s virtual marathon available.

"We are still looking for runners to full places for both these events.

"We request for HCF runners of the traditional London Marathon undertake to raise at least £1,500 and for Virtual London Marathon runners undertake to raise at least £500.

"This money will go directly towards helping us to tackle need and deprivation across the county making a direct difference to people’s lives."
