NICOLA ROPER’S MARATHON RUN FOR BEST FRIEND
Nicola is absolutely buzzing this week after running the London Marathon, last Sunday 28th April, in a new personal best time of 3:21:33 and completely smashing her £1300 fundraising target. So far Nicola has raised a whopping £1652.

Nicola decided to run for the Mouth Cancer Foundation after her best friend Kerry was diagnosed with the disease in 2018. Thankfully, Kerry is cancer free. However, the treatment Kerry and her family endured to rid her of her of her cancer was brutal. The physical and psychological effects of what she went through will stay with her and many of those who supported and cared for her forever. So, Nicola felt the least she could do was put herself through a tiny bit of discomfort, and run 26.2 miles.
A huge well done to Nicola.
