Amanda Davies from Specsavers Exeter is a keen runner and has committed to running the London marathon.

Helping Children with Cancer

Her chosen charity is Children with Cancer, started in 1987 by The O’Gorman family who lost both their children to leukaemia. Touched by their story, the charity was later inaugurated by Princess Diana.

Great fun for another great cause

This is the third London marathon that Amanda has run and so she is no amateur when it comes to training and fundraising.

Amanda said: ‘I’m actually really looking forward to doing the marathon again. It’s an incredible atmosphere. I’d like to thank everyone who has supported me so far. Children with Cancer is such an amazing charity and every penny will help young children fight this dreadful disease.’
