Louise Owen and Julia Rowett are preparing for their first marathon together with the invaluable advice, expertise and patience of Sharon Farrow - who is now on her seventh marathon.

Their combined donations have now exceeded their target of raising £2,000 for British Red Cross.

“The training has been a real challenge but Hospice Care is so important and I feel proud to be making a difference to people facing the end of their lives,” said Julia.

Mandy Cooper is kindly helping Julia host a charity event for Help the Hospices to be held on Saturday 14th April at The Innings in Worksop at 7.30pm.

The event will include a disco, music from local acts, karaoke and a raffle with prizes kindly donated by local businesses.

Tickets are £8 and are available on 01909 472705 or 01909 500786.
