Behind The Scenes: Run, Alesha, Run!

Previous Next

We love sharing a peek behind the scenes of everything at The Dressing Room, including what our team gets up to! We're really proud and excited to say that our lovely Senior Stylist, Alesha, will be running the London Marathon in April in aid of raising money for Children with Cancer charity. Here she is to tell you a little bit more...


Yes, I’m RUNNING the London Marathon on Sunday, 22nd April 2018.


75 days to go…


I applied in the ballot again last year and was rejected for the third year in a row. With cancer being a condition close to mine and my families heart and having previously run The Great North Run for Children with Cancer back in September 2015, I picked up the phone and was instantly offered a place to run for them again.


Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children’s charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer.


Almost 4,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK. Since 1987, Children with Cancer UK has raised over £210 million to support research into the causes and treatment of childhood cancers, and to provide better facilities for caring for children and their families.

I’ll be honest and as The Dressing Room girls know, I’m a huge foodie and the carbohydrate intake has begun, there has been tears on the way along with lots of smiles and the miles adding up. I feel so excited and overwhelmed with the love and support I have already received. 




We will be raising money for Alesha's charity, Children with Cancer, at our upcoming New Season event on 25th February. Stay tuned for more info coming soon! In the meantine, if you wish to donate, please do so over on Alesha's Virgin Money page - thank you!
