A BURNHAM woman has raised £850 for a Weston charity by pounding the pavements of Bristol.
Nicole Antonio, of Berrow Road, ran the Bristol 10K on Sunday to raise cash for Weston Hospicecare.
The 23-year-old said: “I ran the race for Weston Hospicecare because of my mum. “She was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer three years ago now and I wanted to do something that would help local people who are also living with life-limiting illnesses, needing extra support and care in Burnham and the surrounding areas.”
Nicole, who managed to complete the race in 55 minutes and 54 seconds, is now thinking of entering a half marathon to raise even more cash for the hospice.
Last year Weston Hospicecare supported nearly 100 people from Burnham through its community team and day hospice or in-patient unit.
