Peacehave charity has marathon places

A CHARITY in Peacehaven which funds trips for disadvantaged local children and their families has places on the Brighton Marathon 2013.

The ABC Fund is an official charity partner for the race and is inviting runners to sign up.

It raised an amazing £2,500 at the marathon last week and a fashion show at the Meridian Centre raised £600 on April 18.

Charity founder Anne Bickmore said: “Hopefully it will mean a high profile and an awareness of our charity.

“At the moment it is early days but people are signing up to run for us. We are hoping even more people will want to raise funds. We need funds to be able to send families away for a summer holiday in our caravan and to pay for our summer outing.

“We also need funds to take children to the pantomime, we are taking 374 seats at the Devonshire, Eastbourne.”
