A HEALTH visitor from Daventry will be putting in a marathon effort as she tries to raise money for charity.

Suzie O’Shea, who lives in Ash Close on the Ashby Fields estate, will be running in a half marathon at Silverstone in early March to raise money for Children are Butterflies, a charity which helps families who have a lost child.

She is running on behalf of a friend Anne Marie Noel, whose daughter Grace was stillbor in 2009.

Mrs O’Shea said: “It has been hard work doing the training, but it is absolutely worth it. It’s a great cause.”

Mrs Noel has been pleased to hear of the efforts put in by her friend.

She said: “It is just fantastic that she’s willing to put herself through this to raise funds for such a good cause.”
