Well done Amanda Northamptonshire Carers would like to say a huge thank you to Amanda Parker for running the 2018 London Marathon in aid if our Silver Jubilee Appeal. She has achieved her £2000 target and in the hottest race on record, ran the 26.2 miles in a respectable 5:46:52 Amanda's Story Running the London Marathon has always been a dream, one that I wasn't sure I would ever fulfil. However the dream has become a reality and 22nd April 2018 I will be pounding my feet on the streets of London for 26.2 miles. So this winter will be filled with training to get marathon fit for the big day! I have the honour of running the marathon to raise money for a wonderful local charity; Northamptonshire Carers who work to support carers, which include a parent supporting a child with a learning disability, an adult supporting a parent with dementia, a husband caring for his wife who has a physical disability or a school-child who is relied on by their parent who has a mental health condition. Northamptonshire Carers provide support for Carers in similar roles and many more.
