ALMONDBURY High School headteacher Janet Tolley has done her bit for charity.
And she hopes her efforts, and those of two of her friends, will raise at least £6,000.
Janet ran the London Marathon for the first time.
She was delighted with her time of 4 hours 10 mins and 13 seconds, which saw her finish in 13,444th place.
More importantly the efforts of her and her friends – Tracey Wilcocks and Donna Siberry – have given a boost for Dogs for Disabled.
They were fundraising for the charity after they gave former assistant headteacher Chris Wilcocks’s daughter Lottie a dog to help cope with her spina bifida. Lottie has her heart set on becoming a paralympic athlete and now takes on challenges of her own.
Janet said: “It was a great experience.
“The highlight was seeing and hearing all the crowds, cheering everyone all the time. It was just a sea of people and everyone was backing us”.
Tracey’s time was 3 hours 49mins 26 secs while Donna finished in 3hrs 58mins and 48 secs.
