Alexander Betts runs Marathon in 2:45, raising £2.500 for Asylum Welcome

Richard Howe - Thursday, April 23, 2015

Yesterday, Alexander Betts finished the London Marathon in a fantastic time - and he did so in support of Asylum Welcome!

Asylum Welcome is very grateful for the donations Alexander managed to raise - he "couldn't have chosen a better cause", as one of the donors put it.

We hope, this is the start of a continuing friendship - Alexander Betts not only is a great runner; he is an important voice in the debate on the terrible situation of refugees crossing the Mediterranean. See for instance his recently published comment "Forget the ‘war on smuggling’, we need to be helping refugees in need".
