DISABLED schoolchildren in St Helens are set to benefit - thanks to a determined marathon runner.
Kay Fisher tackled the Edinburgh Marathon, raising almost £800 for The Bridge Centre – the base for the early years section of St Helens Council’s Children’s Disability Service.
Kay’s friend Rachel Henshaw persuaded her to pick The Bridge Centre as her worthy local cause.
Rachel, who works for the council’s Youth Offending Team, is the parent of a pre-school child who accesses the centre.
“After talking with Kay, she was only too happy to help,” said Rachel. “The Bridge Centre is a fantastic facility that provides assessments and support for pre-school children with disabilities.
“It also offers centre-based activities and groups, home visiting and support in various settings and organises educational trips for the families.
“Kay did really well and I’d like to say a big thank you to all our family members, friends and colleagues who sponsored her for the marathon.”
