As Virgin Money’s Charity of the Year, Mencap was also the official charity for the 2020 Virgin Money London Marathon. On Sunday 4 October, 312 runners – including 64 Virgin Money colleagues - took on the 26.2 miles virtual challenge to raise money for Mencap’s life-changing programmes.

Emma Tottenham, group corporate communications and sustainability director at Virgin Money, said: “We have enjoyed a truly inspiring partnership with Mencap and I’m very proud to announce that this is Virgin Money’s most successful fundraising partnership. Colleagues have thrown themselves into fundraising challenges over the past 12 months, including taking part in this weekend’s virtual London Marathon. Our army of fundraisers have shown real determination and enthusiasm despite the impact of COVID-19 and their hard work means Mencap can continue their work to improve the lives of thousands of people across the UK with a learning disability.”
