Heather Walker and Harriett Jones from Hunmanby are taking on the London Marathon for a charity supporting vision impaired young people.
LOOK UK is a small charity that supports vision impaired young people aged 11-29 and their families. The charity runs a free online peer-to-peer mentoring scheme, online support groups as well as and face to face well-being events.
Heather and Harriet will be joining a team of 26 runners who are taking on the 26.2 miles for LOOK.
Heather said: “We chose this charity as we have many friends and colleagues who are visually impaired.
“We also discovered that LOOK has a holiday flat in Scarborough for families affected, to offer respite so we thought it would be nice to put something back into our hometown.
“We are committed to raise £1,500 each which we have enjoyed by doing various fundraising events including a craft fayre, car boot and garage sales and packing bags at a local supermarket.”
LOOK director Charlotte Carson said: “Our team of amazing London marathon runners are our beating heart.”
