I was joined on the phone by Chris who is running in the Brighton Marathon, raising money for the Red Cross. She has never in a marathon before and said that this would be the first and last time. She is running with two colleagues from Westbourne Primary School, Rob Lane and Dara O’Reilly. The School’s Council, a group of pupils, chose the charity, the Red Cross. The target is to raise £3,000. Money can be gifted via the Red Cross website. There is also a Just Giving site
Chris promised to tell us how she got on after the run.
