A team of 10 runners will be tackling the London Marathon on April 28 in support of Papworth Trust.

Marathon – after getting his first medal from Prince Harry.

Sarah decided to take the plunge and run her first marathon less than six months after joining the disability charity.

She admitted she was inspired by the work of staff, volunteers, customers and supporters – and will use that inspiration to help her get over the finishing line.

She said: “I have taken part in a number of half-marathons and running the London Marathon was always on the bucket list.

The runners also include Laura Maslanka who is supporting the work of Papworth Trust all the way from Chicago, USA, after she connected with the charity via a family member who told her about their work.
