Try this link from the FLM website, it lists all the charities. You'll have to cpy and paste the link.

i work part time for a really worth while charity called the Rosemary Foundation, Hospice in the home care. I would love to run and raise funds for them in the next LM. They are prepared to buy a golden Bond for me. Would this guarantee a place for me ?
Thanks for any ideas and help

unless they already have a golden bond place then no - there is a waiting list of charities trying to get them.

The last I heard, the waiting list was so long for charities to buy bond places they had stopped adding new names to the list........

Golden Bond places can be anything from about £800 upwards I think. However the charities I have contacted are more inthe region of £1500 to £2000.

Follow this link

This will give you a list of all charities with bond places. If you email them they will send you the forms to apply for a Golden Bond place (and also tell you how much you'd need to raise).

I am going to apply to a couple of charities and also enter through the general ballot (if I happen to get more than one place I will make sure I let the appropriate people know!)

Hope that helps.
