A Moorlands woman is taking on the London Marathon for a second time.
Trish Sargeant, from Tean, has been offered a last minute place in the 2021 London Marathon which is taking place on October 3.
She last ran the London Marathon when she was 40 in memory of her son Joseph, who sadly passed away at the age of four.
This year, ten years on, Trish will be running not only in Joseph’s memory but also in memory of her father Bill Sargeant.
Trish said: “I am running the London Marathon 2021 for Katharine House Hospice – Stafford because I want to raise money for an amazing charity.
“I have been lucky enough to have been offered a last minute place in the London Marathon 2021.
“I last ran the London Marathon when I was 40 in memory of my son Joseph (who died aged four).
“This year I’ll be 50 which seems like a poignant time to challenge myself again and this time I am running not only in Joseph’s memory but also my lovely dad’s, who passed away after a long hard battle with cancer.
“My dad used to run the family business of Sargeant Butchers in Uttoxeter. It is now run by my cousins.
“Any donations would be greatly appreciated as I am in complete awe of the amazing work and care that Katharine House Hospice provides daily.”
Online donations can be made directly via: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/p-sargeant or alternatively, cash donations can be given to Trish in person to log on her sponsor sheets.
