Charles-Jardine-1Fishing 4 Schools director Charles Jardine is leading our five-strong Virgin Money London Marathon team on Sunday 26th April and would appreciate your support, so please sponsor him now! The team running for The Countryside Alliance Foundation also features Sophie Moate, Holly Bourne-Arton, Josh Woolley and Tori Udale.

Director of the Countryside Alliance’s Fishing 4 Schools project and award-winning angler Charles Jardine is swapping wellies for trainers to run this year’s Virgin London Marathon in aid of the charity. Charles, who is the oldest runner on The Countryside Alliance Foundation (TCAF) team by “a few years,” will run the Marathon, his second, on 26 April and is looking for sponsors.

“At the age of 62, to contemplate running a marathon is an act of clinical insanity, but Fishing 4 Schools and the Countryside Alliance Foundation are such amazing causes I could not pass up the chance,” said Charles.
