Congratulations: Last Saturday Laura Carver took part in the London to Brighton Challenge run, over 100 kilometres. Raising money for St Peter & St James Hospice in remembrance of her sister Becky who died ten years ago, Laura took this challenge for the second time. The weather stayed dry and with pit stops Laura made it home in 14 hours 22minutes and this included 1hour & 20mins stoppages for food and comfort breaks, finishing 81st out of 15,000 starters, quite a few of who didn’t manage to finish the course. She finished in the top 15 women who finished. Laura said it was a very friendly event with people running or walking beside her for company. She would like me to thank all those who so kindly sponsored her, she has raised over £500. You can continue to sponsor her on Virginmoneygiving-Laura Carver. The site will be open for another few months. Well done Laura on another amazing challenge completed, you are truly an inspiration to us all
