Sun shines as walkers take on The Banham Marsden March for cancer charity

THOUSANDS of people took part in The Banham Marsden March recently, raising in excess of £1.6 million for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

The inspiring event saw participants walk 15 miles between The Royal Marsden’s two hospitals in Chelsea and Sutton, or join in for the final five miles. Many taking part were former or current patients at The Royal Marsden, along with their family, friends, and staff from the hospital. 

Supporters also took part in The Banham Marsden March at Home, taking on their own route and distance in their local area, across the UK and abroad. 

This incredible amount raised for the Charity will support The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre, helping to fund groundbreaking research carried out by the hospital’s teams to develop new, more effective treatments for cancer patients worldwide.

Funds raised will also support the very best treatment and care, the latest equipment and modern patient environments at the hospital. 

Antonia Dalmahoy, Managing Director of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, said:

“We are so grateful to everyone who took part in The Banham Marsden March and The Banham Marsden March at Home. Seeing families, friends and colleagues making their way together towards the finish line, united in their determination to make a difference to people with cancer and their loved ones, is hugely inspiring. A big thank you to our title sponsor Banham, all our amazing supporters including their generous sponsors and the volunteers who together helped make the day such a success. Their efforts will help improve the lives of cancer patients not only at The Royal Marsden but across the UK and around the world.”

The Banham Marsden March’s return in 2024 was made possible thanks to title sponsor Banham. 

Charles Hallatt, Executive Chairman at Banham, said:

“Banham has proudly supported The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity since 2015, making this year’s event our ninth March. We were delighted to come together again for The Banham Marsden March this year, with over 80 members of Team Banham joining in on the day to raise funds and awareness for the Charity. 

“It is an immensely special occasion, raising funds for a cause that is very close to our hearts at Banham. Sadly, many of us have been affected by cancer, whether that’s directly or through loved ones or colleagues, and so we are passionate about helping to support The Royal Marsden’s life-saving work.

“We are delighted to be continuing our support of the Charity as title sponsor of The Banham Marsden March and The Banham Marsden March at Home in 2025, which will be our tenth event together, and are already looking forward to being at the start line next year.”
