Luton Marathon is supporting the Keech Hospice.
The Keech Hospice provides both emotional and practical support for adults and children diagnosed with a life-limiting condition. One of only a handful of UK organisations offering both an adult and children's hospice from the same site, the Adult Hospice provides for patients in Luton and South Bedfordshire and Children's Hospice for children in Beds and Herts. Please help by raising much needed funds for this very worthwhile cause.
