NLT Sponsored Run for 2023 – UPDATE

This year NLT has 4 places in the London Marathon’s ‘The Big Half‘ event on 3rd September.  This is a half marathon that starts at Tower Bridge and finishes via a roundabout route at the ‘Cutty Sark’ in Greenwich.  The four runners for NLT will be Julie and Matthew Houghton, both of whom have run several times for NLT, and two friends, Stella and Alex.

The money raised from past running events has been an important help to our work in Nepal, and has funded the building of several houses for vulnerable families affected by leprosy and extreme poverty , vocational training and other important needs.

If you would consider sponsoring our runners and could mention it to friends or family and encourage some sponsorship, however small, that would be terrific!

You can support them directly using the London Marathon Events ‘Enthuse’ page:


If you would prefer to make payments direct to NLT, please mention ‘Big Half’ and pay by cheque (Nepal Leprosy Trust), by Paypal (, by using the ‘donate’ button on the NLT website or by direct bank transfer (Nepal Leprosy Trust, sort code 20-72-33, account number 30668974).

This run is twice the length of the Vitality Run, so our runners will be working hard for NLT!!

Thank you
