Stokie the Dragon to pound the streets of London

Stokie the Dragon will be taking part in this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon to help raise money for The Children’s Trust. The Basingstoke Town Football Club’s popular mascot is a friend of our mascots, Tadworth and Barnie and has supported The Children's Trust in the past. Talking about his marathon challenge, he said: "This is my first marathon ever, so doing it as a big, fluffy dragon is a huge challenge! "I’m running for The Children’s Trust because the work the charity does is awe-inspiring, so I hope that all my Basingstoke fans will help support me to raise money for some very special children."
