The longevity of our relationship with Flora has allowed London to mature and the event is now recognised as the greatest Marathon in the World. It has also gained the accolade of the largest annual fundraising event in the world with more than £46 million being raised annually for charity.” Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
