Sisters’ hospice effort in memory of mother
THE Pilgrims Hospice is to host a stall in Tenterden High Street on Saturday morning to drum up support for two sisters running the London Marathon.
Emma Goodman and Louise Jennings recently completed a half marathon in Lydd as part of their training for the April 26 race, which they are running to raise money for the charity and in memory of their late mother, Dina Wood, of Rolvenden Layne.
Cindy Jennings, fund-raiser for the hospice and Louise’s mother-in-law, said: “The girls have raised about £1,000 with their Just Giving webpage, but not everybody is happy to sponsor online, so they can sponsor them at the stall.”
Anyone wanting to sponsor Emma and Louise online can do by visiting www.justgiving.com/ emmagandlouisej, phone Mrs Goodman on 07811 209452 or visit Saturday’s stall.
