LEDBURY local Holly Gourley will be taking part in the London Marathon on Sunday, April 28 to raise funds for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity.

She is being supported by her employer, United Oil Seeds, to raise money for the lifesaving charity and fund future missions.

Mary Seldon, Herefordshire fundraising executive for Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, said: "We're so grateful that Holly has chosen to run the London Marathon in aid of Midlands Air Ambulance Charity, and wish her all the best in taking on this tough challenge!

"It's not commonly known that the charity receives no Government or National Lottery funding, so being supported by people like Holly means that we can continue to undertake our missions 365 days of the year saving lives around Herefordshire."
