Brampton family’s marathon ambition for grandad

TWO sisters will be making their way from Brampton to Cambridge next week in memory of their grandad.

Emma Saberton, aged 10 and Sophie, 9 will be walking 22 miles with their father Jim, uncle Andrew and dog Wolfie to raise money for the Arthur Rank Hospice.

The youngsters hope to raise �500 by trekking from their grandmother’s house in Arbury, Cambridge along the guided busway to their home in Westbrook Close on Saturday, March 26.

The pair are raising money in memory of their grandad, who died three years at the hospice in Cambridge from chronic heart problems aged 71. Mr Saberton was a keen runner and had completed the London Marathon.

Emma said: “We estimate our walk will be approximately 22 miles long, so this will be our marathon in memory of our grandad.”
