Mu­sic-athon warm-up for the main event

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - London Marathon -

A FUND-RAISER is to host a mu­sic marathon in prepa­ra­tion for run­ning a real one.

Jour­nal­ist Joanna Earle, who lives in Home­wood Road, Ten­ter­den, will host the event at the Ten­ter­den club in Church Road on Satur­day to help boost spon­sor­ship for her par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Lon­don Marathon in aid of the na­tional deaf-blind char­ity, Sense.

The mu­si­cal evening will in­clude lo­cal bands and a raf­fle.

Joanna, 25, hopes to raise £2,500 for Sense and has been run­ning 15 miles in the coun­try­side in prepa­ra­tion.

She said: “I once did a story on a young deaf-blind boy in York­shire and fol­lowed him through his day-to-day life.

“It was an eye opener to see the sup­port Sense pro­vides to him and his fam­ily.”

Tick­ets for the mu­sic marathon cost £12 and are avail­able on 07765 406413. Any­one want­ing to spon­sor Joanna can do so by vis­it­ing www.just­giv­ing.com/ joearle
