A woman who raised more than £5,000 for a charity that researches the cause of sudden cardiac death has been made a patron.
Julie Calvert was made a patron of The Nicola Emmerson Trust for all her hard work running the London Marathon.
A further £1,000 was raised by the Royston Runners, and a cheque was presented to representatives from the charity at a barbecue.
Car sales company Reed Autos also raised almost £200 for trust when it held a car wash at the end of June.
At a separate event, family members and friends from the charity walked alongside 1,700 people who had lost a loved one to sudden cardiac death at the Heart of London Bridges Walk.
