She said: “Reclaim Life are a local charity who offer five free sessions of life coaching to local people suffering from depression, anxiety, panic attacks trauma or low self esteem.

“KidsOut is a national charity with local focus. They provide positive opportunities and experiences to enhance the wellbeing and outlook of disadvantaged children, supporting them in becoming well-integrated members of society. I don’t find running comes easily, I really do struggle. I think mile 10 is the worst, those last 3 miles go on forever. I have already completed 4 half marathons, that is 52 miles done and 39 miles to go.

“Donations can be made online or in person at the Morrisons customer service desk.”
