Lisa Halls, from Fenstanton, is hosting a string of events to raise funds for Children with Cancer UK, a charity that helps support youngsters with the condition.

Events include a charity auction that is being hosted by Lisa who is running the London Marathon with her friend Nina.

The auction, which will be held at The Duchess Freehouse and Restaurant, Fenstanton, will raise funds to go towards the charity.

The beauty therapist said: “I did the London Marathon back in 2003 and I vowed that I would never do it again. But then my friend did it last year and raised £5000 for Children with Cancer UK, and it just made me want to do it again.

“The charity is such a good cause, and I know quite a few people that have either suffered with cancer or know someone that has so really wanted to raise as much money as we can.

“I know that whatever pain I will go through running, it will be nothing compared to what those children will have to go through and that is what will keep me going.

The night will also hold an ‘auction of promises’ where people will offer services locally in a bid to raise more money for the charity.
