Tim’s Marathon

Tim Jones, CEO of Citylife

Tim Jones, CEO of Citylife (the charitable issuer of the East London Bond) will be attempting the inaugural Brighton Marathon on 18th April alongside staff from the Bromley by Bow Centre, one of the charities benefiting from the East London Bond.

Of course Tim is hoping for sponsorship large and small from individuals and companies alike (go to Tim’s Just Giving page here) but in a rare twist, for every supporter willing to pledge ?500 or more, Tim is offering to give them every penny back.

The East London Bond is an amazing charitable initiative that guarantees to return 100% of whatever is paid in to it 5 years later. If you want somewhere safe to keep your cash but want to do good with it meanwhile this Bond is a phenomenal proposition – it not only keeps your capital safe but makes an up-front donation to charity of approximately 20%!

To pledge ?500 or more to Tim’s Marathon and the East London Bond please complete a pledge form. Thank you for your support.
