Student’s big challenge
Homewood School pupil Emma Carlton, 17, is is running for Sense, a national charity which supports children and adults who are deafblind or have sensory impairments.
She has already smashed her fundraising target of £1,500, with more donations flowing in.
Miss Carlton said: “It will be my first ever marathon and I will be 18 the week before the marathon.
“As it is my first marathon my target is to complete it comfortably and enjoy it.
“It is a massive challenge but I am ready to take it on.
“I am running the London Marathon to help raise money for this amazing charity and to be able to help provide a better quality of life for those affected.”
