A sales executive from Royston is set to run the London Marathon in memory of her friend’s daughter.

Julie Calvert will be running the marathon for The Nicola Emmerson Trust – a charity set up in the name of her friend Julie’s daughter, who died from a sudden cardiac arrest in 2007.

The charity raises money for research into sudden cardiac death at Papworth Hospital in Papworth Everard.

The sales executive said: “I have known Nicola’s mum Julie for years and have supported many of their fundraising events.

“I volunteered to run the marathon for the charity not knowing really how difficult it would be to accomplish the required miles.
