Haydon runs the London Marathon

Haydon the Womble, aka Dean Parsons, will be running the London Marathon on 25 April.

The mascot of AFC Wimbledon football club is fundraising for The Children’s Trust, a national charity providing care, therapy and education to some of the UK’s most severely disabled children.

He says: “I will be running (well, fast walking) the 2010 London marathon, forcing my furry body over 26.2 miles, to raise money for a charity I feel very proud to represent, as well as spread the word further about the mighty AFC Wimbledon.”

You can find out more and sponsor Haydon on his Virgin Money Giving page.
