Friends take on marathon challenge

A group of friends are taking part in a gruelling training regime for this year’s Virgin Money London Marathon to help raise funds for The Children’s Trust. Mother-of-two, Laura Treadaway, her brother-in-law James Draper and friend, Hayley Wooldridge are hoping to raise £6,000. It will be the second time that Laura – who also works for The Children’s Trust – will have taken part in the famous event. Laura, a Community Fundraiser, said: "It’ s a fantastic experience with everyone cheering you on all the way round. "We are hoping that family, friends and work colleagues will show their support by sponsoring us to help us achieve our fundraising target.”
