HALF MARATHON SUCCESS FOR THE FUND
Vickie Brandom, Charlotte's sister in law, ran her first half marathon - Derby Ramathon 2016, against the odds to raise over £250 for the fund.
Just three week's before her first half marathon attempt, she cracked her ribs, meaning that training had to stop.
But against the odds, Vickie completed the 13 mile course on a red hot day in 2hrs 28mins.
Well done Vickie
