A Weston Hospicecare employee, who organises some of the charity’s biggest events, will take on the Christmas Cracker.

Event organiser Kelsey Dehaney has taken part in Weston Athletics Club’s penguin training programme over the past few weeks to prepare for the 10k challenge.

With little running experience, Kelsey decided to take part after being convinced by members of the running club.

She said: “My only previous running experience came from school when they made us run in PE.

“I am very much a beginner and previously I have really struggled to get into running.

“It makes a huge difference running with a big group of people at a steady pace and I feel each week I’m improving.”
