Chair of Friends of Sussex Hospices, Kathy Gore is running in the London Marathon on Sunday to raise money for Sussex Hospices.

This will be Kathy’s fifth marathon and although a little nervous, as she says she hasn’t put in the training she has for previous marathons, she feels confident she’ll make it across the finish line.

She said, however: “it might not be ahead of the man in the heavy diving suit”.

She will be wearing running number 9162.

Kathy was became an OBE in January for services to charity and to the community of East Sussex, particularly to Hospice Care.
