In June they took part in the Penn and Tylers Green Fun Run, and on Satur­day com­pleted the Thames Val­ley Chal­lenge.

Anna Roll said: “It was an ab­so­lutely in­cred­i­ble event with the first four com­plet­ing it in just over 25 hours.

Steve Grudg­ings said: “I am ex­tremely proud that they’ve de­cided to do this.

“This has been their de­ci­sion and some­thing that I am go­ing to be sup­port­ing them through­out this in any way I can.”
