Congratulations and thank you to Ellie and Karen - Our amazing London Marathon runners


On Sunday April 22nd, along with thousands of others, two truly inspirational people ran 26 miles through central London to raise money for Contact the Elderly. Ellie and Karen completed the London Marathon in 4 hours 28 minutes and 5 hours 30 minutes respectively.

Together they managed to raise nearly £3,000 for Contact the Elderly, helping us maintain and extend our service so it can reach even more isolated and lonely older people in the UK. No one should have to feel lonely, and people like Ellie and Karen are the reason we’re able to do what we do.

A huge congratulations and a massive thank you to Karen and Ellie from everyone at Contact the Elderly!

You can still sponsor Ellie or Karen on their fundraising pages, just go to -
