LOCAL runner Jane Elcombe is to fulfil her dream of running the London Marathon and Sunday and will be raising funds for the Oliver Curd Trust.
Sarah and Richard Curd, from Peasmarsh, set the trust up in memory of their son Oliver who lost his battle with bone cancer in 2007 aged 9, and now offer local holidays to children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses, including bereaved families.
Jane has been a keen supporter of the charity and has previously completed the Hastings Half Marathon on numerous occasions and also the London to Brighton bike ride.
This year after four years of applying she has finally secured a ballot place for London.
If you would like to support Jane please visit www.justgiving.com/janeelcombe or text JNEE99 and the amount you would like to donate to 70070.
