Children’s charity Starlight is £25,000 better off thanks to Tim Hutchen being named the winner of the Virgin Money Giving MasterCard £25,000 donation giveaway.
Any donation made to a Virgin Money London Marathon fundraiser’s Virgin Money Giving page using a MasterCard® was entered into a prize draw and of the thousands of donations made, Tim was the lucky recipient.
Tim, from London, is running in the 2016 Virgin Money London Marathon on behalf of his chosen charity, Starlight, the charity that grants wishes to seriously and terminally ill children. They provide fun, entertainment, laughter and distraction for children in every children’s’ hospital ward and hospice throughout the United Kingdom.
The charity told us that the £25,000 will help them build 8 new Starlight Fun Centres and provide entertainment for an estimated 3,500 ill children.
Thanks to the £25,000 donation, Tim’s fundraising total now stands at over £26,500 and pushes him into the top 10 Virgin Money Giving London Marathon fundraisers.
Winning fundraiser Tim Hutchen said:
I am absolutely delighted and so pleased for Starlight, which is a great charity. I am very grateful to MasterCard for such a generous donation that will enable Starlight to continue their amazing work with such deserving children. I would also like to thank Virgin Money Giving for creating this opportunity and for the incredible fundraising service they provide for the London Marathon and so many other events throughout the year.”
Alex Abbott from the Starlight fundraising team said they were thrilled to receive the donation from MasterCard and Virgin Money Giving.
