Chris Tansey Runs Marathon for

AdviceUK's Foundation Fund!

We’re fundraising to help our members.

Help our member advice centres to help others.

Chris Tansey, AdviceUK Data Manager and Marathon Runner!

Together, our 700 member advice centres help around 2 million people a year. But they need help too!

Demand for their free advice services has never been higher – but making ends meet has never been more difficult.

To help them, we have set up a foundation fund from which to give small grants.

In our 40th year our target is to raise £40,000, and we’re kicking off on the exact date of our 40th anniversary – 28th April with an entry in the London Marathon.

Please sponsor our runner, member of staff Chris Tansey.


Marathon Medal

Chris is an experienced runner with half marathons and a marathon behind him. Although he’s never ran London we have high hopes – Go Chris!!

We’ll be raising funds throughout the year but please help us get a good start towards our target by sponsoring Chris.

We would welcome any amount but why not make it a multiple of 40?  40p or £10.48 – (which is equivalent to 40p a mile based on 26.2 mile); 16, £40 etc.

Here’s how your money will help:

£40 will cover all the costs of a typical free advice session:

  • Will pay for ½ days training for an adviser
  • Will pay for a whole months insurance costs for a small advice centre
  • Will pay for a whole months I.T. costs for 1 adviser

And what a difference it makes for the centres and the people they want to help!

We would be happy with any amount - whether 40p, £4, £40, £400 or £4,000!

£10.48  Equivalent to 40p a mile based on 26.2 mile
