Amanda Peel to run London Marathon in 2024 for CRY

Amanda, 45, from Tadley, has been building up her running challenges in preparation for running the London Marathon in 2024.

Amanda said: “I’ve been running a fair few years now, have completed 40 half marathons and even ran a couple of ultra-distance at Endure 24 at Wasing Park. But I have always wanted to run the London Marathon, my husband, Mike, has done it a few times but I have never managed to get a place.

“This year I applied to run for CRY as my brother and his wife lost their daughter very suddenly as she sadly had a poorly heart. Because of that, I feel really passionate about this cause and was thrilled when they accepted my application so now I am trying to raise as much money as possible for them – my target is £2000 but I would love to smash that!” Amanda has a Just Giving page : and customers can also donate cash directly in her shop as there is a charity box on the counter.
