James Taylor took part in the 2021 London Marathon and has done a phenomenal job raising money for CLEFT. His family cheered him on and he managed to get a very impressive time of 3 hours 31 minutes to complete the race - a PB too! 

The marathon itself was something else – a really amazing day, the support from the crowds was just incredible – I don’t think there was a single stretch of the 26 miles that wasn’t covered with crowds, or a steel drum band, or a DJ or a choir!  Obviously everyone says all this but you don’t really get it until you experience it yourself.

Not only did James manage to cross the finishing line with a smile on his face but he has accomplished something quite special too - he set up his fundraising page and within just one week raised £2400 making him our top fundraiser this year. Below are some of the photos from the day, capturing the feel-good vibes of the day. 

Thank you James!
