The Speaker hosts marathon launch

Sadiq Khan MP said:

"With just days left to the London Marathon 2014, it was a real honour to officially launch the Dispossessed Fund runners' team in the unique surroundings of the Speaker's House here in Parliament. With speeches from Hugh Brasher, the Race Director, to David Cohen, award winning journalist and fellow runner and even Mr Speaker himself, the event provided an excellent opportunity to celebrate the important work that the Fund does to help 100,000s of people across London. Having seen firsthand how invaluable the work of the Dispossessed Fund is, and knowing the money I raise will go to help such a brilliant cause is a real boost to raise as much money as I can for them. 

Marathon Race Director Hugh Brasher shows his support for #YesWeKhan.
