Congratulations to Beth Eite who has raised over £600 for Leytonstone charity Carefree Kids in last Sunday’s Marathon.
Beth was the first person to enter the marathon on behalf of the charity and the money raised will go towards a much needed new playbus, which is used in schools throughout Waltham Forest and surrounding boroughs to help troubled kids, as well as towards general office costs.
Carefree Kids would like to thank everyone using this site who sponsored Beth, and if you haven’t yet, you still can through: MyDonate Fundraisers BethEite1
The charity’s next fundraising event is a benefit concert by internationally known cellist Alexander Baillie, which will be on Saturday 9 June at Forest School. You can buy tickets now, and the charity would be really grateful if you’d publicise this event for them.

Charity’s first ever marathon entry.
Carefree Kids, a Leytonstone based charity working in schools throughout Waltham Forest and the neighbouring boroughs, is entering its first ever runner in the London Marathon this Sunday to raise money towards an urgently needed new playbus and towards general office costs.
27-year old Beth Eite is a town planner with Tower Hamlets Council. She has run two full marathons before, in Rome and Edinburgh, but has struggled with a knee injury this year, so is hoping this won’t deter her success.
Beth found out about Carefree Kids from her boyfriend, Rob, whose mum is chair of the Trustees and a volunteer. Rob was also a pupil at George Tomlinson School in Leytonstone, one the main schools the charity works with.
