A primary school teacher is limbering up to take part in a half-marathon to raise money for a children’s charity today.

Kathy Noble, who works at Holly Park School in Friern Barnet, will run the Silverstone Half Marathon for Starlight Children’s Foundation.

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 she is “really excited” about helping to make the wishes of children come true.
