Five runners who took part in this year's Flora London Marathon have raised pound;3,000 for the Teachers' Benevolent Fund. The money was collected by Brian Drummond and Duncan Cryer of Bristol, Mark Barham of Cheddar, Susan Maguire of Weston-super-Mare and Neil Bates of Hastings.

The TBF has 28,000 members and a national network of 400 local welfare workers. It provides grants and loans for teachers and lecturers, and helps widows, widowers and dependent children. The TBF also runs residential and convalescent homes in Scarborough, Stoke-on-Trent, Birmingham and Elstree. It recently launched a Money Advice service (tel: 0171 465 0498) for teachers with financial problems.
