Mile Markers

We love to have local groups helping out at the event, managing areas such as the baggage hall or water stations, as well as marshalling a mile. In return ABP Southampton Marathon will donate £250 to us as your chosen charity. 

They have 13.1 miles to cover and you will need a minimum of 20 people to gain the £250. This will be awarded in the form of a cheque to your group after the event by one of the Marafun team on behalf of ABP Southampton. Register your interest to be mile marker below.

Be a superstar for Southampton Hospital Charity

Southampton Hospital Charity are dedicated to working alongside our friends and partners from the local community as, together, we raise funds for University Hospital Southampton beyond the scope of NHS resources.

With the support of the community, we strive to enhance and transform the treatment, care and support that we are able to provide for our patients and their families as well as investing in advancements in clinical research, treatments and equipment.

Supporting your local hospital charity is a rewarding experience. YOU can make a difference to the lives of the 750,000 patients cared for every year by the hospitals' 10,500 staff right now.

Our hospitals provide a wide range of healthcare services for people living not just in Southampton, but throughout central southern England and the Channel Islands. The chances are that if you live in Hampshire, you will know several people who have been referred to our hospitals for our specialist services including Southampton Children’s Hospital, cancer, eye, neurogical, heart, and emergency care. As such, we encourage you to support any area of our services closest to your heart.


Children's emergency and trauma department appeal

Support our Children’s Emergency and Trauma Department appeal

24 hours a day, 365 days a year, our incredible Southampton Children’s Hospital team look after young people and babies in one of the UK’s busiest children’s emergency departments.

Help us raise £2 million to build a new dedicated Children’s Emergency and Trauma Department here in Southampton. As an emergency service our treatments and outcomes are among best in the UK, but our facilities do little to ease the anxiety felt by children and families at what is often a stressful and scary time. We have committed to raising £2 million which will coincide with £2 million worth of match funding from the Government, as well as £800,000 already allocated by the hospital, allowing us to finally make this critical ambition a reality by the end of 2018.
