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 : https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/amanda-peel7 and customers can also donate cash directly in her shop as there is a charity box on the counter.
