Local lad Robert Collins who is employed at the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council has been selected to participate in next years London Marathon on behalf of the charity "Help A Capital Child".

Russel Duffield is a young local boy that was born with Cerebral-Palsy which means that he is unable to walk and is in a wheelchair. His family and friends are currently attempting to raise enough money in order to send him to America for an operation that may enable him to walk and improve his quality of life. Before he is able to have the operation he must go through a lot of Physiotherapy in order to prepare his body.

Local resident Bob Armitage will be running the London Marathon this year to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.
