Emily PapeWe are always pleased to hear stories about locals raising money for good causes and when Emily Pape told us about her ambition to run the London Marathon this year in aid of Motor Neurone Disease and in memory of Sue Powell we had to help spread the word.

Emily needs to raise £3000 to secure her place in the marathon. It’s a tall order but with her determination and passion to achieve this in her dear friend’s name she is well on her way.

We’re going to follow her progress on her own blog, but meanwhile please consider donating to this worthy cause and read Emily’s own account of her motivations and why indeed she will be wearing an angel costume…

Please use her Just Giving page to make a donation or fill in her sponsorship form at Uley Community Stores.
