A Royston woman who is gearing up to run the London Marathon is hoping to drum up charity funds with a quiz.

Carrie Taylor will be running the marathon for the Family Holiday Association, because it gives children living in poverty the chance to create some happy childhood memories on a break away with their family.

She said: “I have worked in the travel industry for over 15 years – Premier Travel in Royston – and know just how important a family holiday is to people. I have been lucky to go to some lovely places and am now looking forward to helping others.

“It is something I have always wanted to do and since joining Royston Runners believe I can achieve.”

The quiz will be held on Friday, February 26 at Royston Football Club. You can donate by visiting her fundraising page here.
