Agyness Deyn and Henry Holland have recently been officially confirmed to be running the London Marathon this weekend. They will be running as part of the Oxglam fashion force (in aid of Oxfam) to raise money for their London Marathon project that aims to change less fortunate lives around the world.

Having recently returned from a visit in Boznia Henry blogged about his experience:

“We visited the Buhangija school for kids with special needs and were surprised to see that a lot of them were albino. Then it was explained to us that in 2006, there was a spate of killings in Tanzania with people killing albino children for good luck.”
“So so sad; these kids had been taken in by the school for their own protection and the school was therefore oversubscribed and in desperate need of a new dormitory. Heartbreaking.”

Oxglam hope to raise money that will contribute towards helping people around the world who live in these kind of nightmare - ish conditions.
