Tom Heys is raising £2,250 for Bankside Open Spaces Trust
About
I am running the London Marathon to raise money for a new open space in SE1. I will be running it in fancy dress (as a tree) and possibly getting into the Guinness Book of Records for the fastest marathon dressed as a plant. I will be competing against a cactus of unknown running ability. Why am I doing this? To raise money for charity. On Redcross Way, a tranquil back-street running parallel to Borough High Street and 2 minutes from Borough Market, there's a plot of land surrounded by hoardings. This is Cross Bones, a pauper's burial ground with a legend going back to medieval times. A post-medieval un-consecrated burial ground south of the River Thames in SE1 that remained in use until 1853. Loads of paupers and prostitutes from the Bankside area are thought to be buried there. Read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_Bones Landowner Transport for London (TfL) has let the burial ground to Bankside Open Spaces Trust (BOST). BOST have got some funding to make the site safe, add a gate, and lay out the first raised bed to protect the human remains. they need to raise a lot more to finish the job. Please donate.
