Catherine was a guest writer for our Thumb Print magazine in July 2020. In this bit, she told us about her amazing fundraising after her Grandpa had MND.

I started making and selling loom band bracelets, pompom pets and cupcakes, but sadly coronavirus prevented me from selling any more.

So I decided to try and raise some more money by completing 26.2 laps of our allotment plot on the day that the London Marathon was due to take place.

When it came to the day of my run, I was really excited because I had already raised nearly £600!

Doing 26.2 laps was quite hard towards the end, but thinking about Grandpa and how proud he would be kept me going.

I eventually got to the end and went through the finish line and I felt really happy.

Well done Catherine!
