Former mental health nurse Bridgette James, ran the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 22 April to raise crucial funds and awareness for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices.

Addlestone resident and mother of one Bridgette, received one of many sought-after ballot places in the 2018 London Marathon and wanted to run for a cause.

Bridgette said; “In 2015 I visited the Sam Beare Hospice in Weybridge and was moved by the compassion of the staff towards patients. The work they do resonates with people like myself who’ve worked in the nursing profession and is the main reason why I want to raise funds for this wonderful charity.”
