A Berkshire woman is taking on the Paris Marathon next weekend to raise money for Thatcham’s wheelchair basketball club.
Michelle Bailey has been training with her sister Estelle for next Sunday’s race in support of Thames Valley Kings.
She has set herself a target of raising £500 for the club, which provides competitive wheelchair basketball for people of all ages in the area.
Michelle said: “Small charities funding is often overlooked. I’m hugely impressed by the time the volunteers put in alongside their full-time jobs and also by what they have achieved with such little support.
“I hope that by running for them I can help raise their profile and some much needed funds, so a big thank you to anyone who chooses to contribute.”
