She raised more than £300 for Boston Women’s Aid, a charity which aim to prevent domestic abuse, and raise awarness of the dangers resulting from being in an abusive relationship.

Chairman of Boston Women’s Aid Will Herbert said: “This has been our first experience of having a sponsored runner and I would like to pass on our grateful thanks to Angela who, as well as competing, has helped us learn a lot, so we will be able to do this again in the future.”
