Some of the UK’s best burger restaurants and stalls are getting behind my London Marathon run for ActionAid and donating burgers galore to you guys!
Here’s how it works: as a thank you for donating to my 26.2 mile marathon attempt on Sunday 13th April, the burger peeps listed below have all very generously given me burgers to give away to my marathon sponsors – as a big thanks for your support. Any donations you feel tempted to make can be done quickly and safely on my Just Giving page here.
So everyone who can spare a pound or two to sponsor my run for ActionAid will then be entered into a prize draw to win one of the below burger meals – anything from a pair of burgers to some £40 meal vouchers – if you have already donated you’ll be entered, obviously! It doesn’t matter how much you sponsor, whether it’s £1 or £100 (!) – every single donation is appreciated and makes a huge difference to the incredible work the charity does. So please take a second to read more about ActionAid and where your money would be going.
Massive thank you to the incredible burger and Springsteen loving community for your support on this, and of course to everyone who has already donated, and those who may donate over the next two weeks. Thank you also for your motivation and encouragement through this tough training period – you’ve all helped in your own little ways. I now own more pieces of lycra than Springsteen t-shirts. I never ever thought it would come to this…
So, the burger bit! The burger places donating to my London Marathon run include:
One of the north-west’s best burger restaurants, this place is famous for it’s consistently brilliant burgers, hefty brunches and unusual creations (parmo burger anyone?) There’s a £40 voucher up for grabs here, you could be trying the new “Bang Thai D” special, pictured below. @SoLiTaNq
Without a doubt one of my top burgers on London’s streets, Zan, the brains behind Bleeker, flips blissfully juicy burgers from this van, which pops up in various locations across the city. @BleekerBurger
Travelling across the pond from New York, for those keen on a quicky burger, the Springsteen fans at Shake Shack have kindly donated lots of vouchers to their conveniently located London restaurant in Covent Garden. @ShakeShack @ShakeShackUK
From Reykjavik to London, this Icelandic burger joint is spreading across the capital with the latest restaurant opening on Kings Road. Expect a simple and fulfilling burger fix in a relaxed setting, with a whole of load of burgers donated by these guys. @BurgerJointUK
Well respected within Sheffield’s burger loving community, the Twisted Burger Company have just expanded to include a new site at Aire Bar in Leeds. The gooey menu includes favourites such as the Pig Daddy Kane (with double patty and chorizo and apple jam!) and the Super Supersize Me, pictured below. @TwistedBurgerCo
There may be a few more burgers to come, I’ll keep you posted.
Huge huge thanks to the generous burger restaurants and those supporting me with donations, morale boosting tweets, emails, texts, phone calls and conversations. If anyone is coming down on the day to watch please let me know where you you’ll be so I can give you a sweaty high five!

Thank you SO MUCH!!
