A primary school teacher will strap on her running shoes and take part in a half-marathon to raise money for a children’s charity.

Holly Park School in Friern Barnet is getting behind 30-year-old, Kathy Noble, who will run alongside a host of celebs in the Silverstone Half Marathon for Starlight Children’s Foundation on Sunday.

The charity grants once-in-a-lifetime wishes for seriously and terminally ill children and provides entertainment in hospitals and hospices across the UK. 

Ms Noble, who lives in Barnet, said: “As a primary school teacher, I wanted to run for a children’s charity.  Starlight offers wonderful adventures for very poorly children and I am really excited about helping to make the dearest wishes of some of these children come true.”

She took up running three years ago and since then has run two half marathons. 

Ms Noble added: “I have been sticking to my training programme pretty carefully and I hope this, and the thought of helping Starlight to grant special wishes for very poorly children, will be enough to get me round the course in a good time.”
