The charity I've chosen to run The London Marathon for is very close to my heart because it's one my very own my mum set up and now runs successfully in Lytham St Anne's.

It all began when we lost my nanna 'nanna helen' four years ago. By her own admission my mum will say she experienced the dreadful feeling of loneliness. She was instantly aware there would be others in the local community who were feeling the same so she decided to set up a friendship group - Just Good Friends. 

In the first meeting, mum spoke of her big plans for the group to five or six people over a cup of tea and a biscuit. Three years later, there are now regularly over 100 people who attend activities from dancing and keepfit to magic shows, raffles and entertainment. 

The group has given something so special to this group of people - many of whom openly admit that they often wouldn't leave the house or see a single person if it wasn't for the group. 

So I'll be proudly running my 26 miles to raise money to further support this incredible group of people and to help combat loneliness amongst our elderly and vulnerable neighbours, our mums and dads, our nannas and grandads. 

I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations
