STAFF from a clothing shop will be taking part in the Great Eastern Run in aid of Anna’s Hope.

Manager of White Stuff in Stamford Emma Fulwood will be running 13 miles and three other members of staff from the High Street-based shop will be taking part in the 4km fun run.

Anna’s Hope, which supports children and young people with brain tumours, is the shop’s charity of the year.

Emma said the team hope to raise £500 for the charity.

Carole Hughes, who founded the charity in memory of her daughter, will also be taking part in the fun run, alongside Alison Mitchell, a nurse who the charity funds. Alison is based at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge.

Carole is urging everyone to enter including youngsters from across the area, as part of the Great Eastern Run Junior Challenge.

Prizes will be awarded to schools, clubs or organisations which enter the most runners under the age of 16. The girl and boy who raise the most money for Anna’s Hope will receive a Nintendo Wii game and the organisation which raises the most money for the charity will receive a free sports team kit or equivalent worth £500 from Chroma Sports and Trophies.

Meanwhile, the Rotary Club of the Deepings has said the raft race raised £4,800 of which £1,000 has been donated to Help for Heroes. Anna’s Hope will also benefit from the proceeds and a presentation will be made in October.
