James Lucas, Director at Barcadia Media, said:

"As an industry, financial services has rallied behind some fantastic charity campaigns in the past, and we think this is a perfect opportunity to bring the best and brightest of our industry together to support an important cause.

"We are all fathers ourselves and, while we hope we will never need to use WellChild's services, it is incredibly important that families across the UK have access to crucial support when they need it most. None of us are natural athletes - so we are all somewhat out of our comfort zones - but it will be worth it, and we appreciate your support."

Alan Cleary, Managing Director at Precise Mortgages, added:

"Hats off to James and the team for doing the marathon for this deserving charity. I will be doing the slightly less gruelling activity of attending the charity casino night which I am sure will be great fun and will contribute handsomely to WellChild."
