A HOUSING association employee has raised £1,700 for a children’s cancer charity after running the London Marathon.

Jenny Davies, 37, construction services manager at Longhurst Group, ran 26.2 miles to raise money for CLIC Sargent, which cares for children and young people with cancer and their families.

She chose the charity because her nephew is in his third year of treatment for leukaemia.

Jenny, who lives just outside Newark, completed the marathon in 5hrs 30mins 24secs.

She thanked everyone who had supported her and said: “Running the marathon was a fantastic experience, very hot and painful but absolutely brilliant.”
