Runner Debbie Bland, of Menston, is taking part in the London Marathon next month in aid of Wakefield Hospice.

Debbie, member of Baildon Runners, ran her first London Marathon in 2003 and has raised thousands of pounds for charities and good causes. This will be her 11th London Marathon.

Her brother Chris is being cared for in Wakefield Hospice after being diagnosed with an aggressive cancer, mesothelioma, last year.
