Wyke’s own Leah Darvell is undertaking a marathon challenge for a cause close to her heart. Throughout February, Leah is running two miles a day, 56 miles in total, to raise money for Cancer Research UK and has so far raised over £3,000 for the charity.
She said: “Cancer has dominated the last 10 months of my family’s life, with my mum being diagnosed at the beginning of Lockdown in March.
“A group of us decided to do something to fundraise for Cancer Research, as it is something close to a lot of people’s hearts. None of us are runners, so this is a real challenge for us.
“We set our fundraising goal to £150, hoping that people could spare a few pounds, so to have raised over £2,600 on day 4 of our challenge was very overwhelming.”
Well done Leah, we are all supporting you!
