Runners took part in a half marathon to raise £15,000 for people with learning disabilities.

Twenty people tackled the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon in aid of Norwood on Sunday. 

The group joined 12,500 people for the 13.1 mile route taking in Kensington Gardens, Green Park, the Houses of Parliament and the London Eye.

Andrew Samuels, 43, of Chenies Place, Barnet, said: “I took part as it was a perfect excuse to raise some money for an excellent cause and shed a few pounds along the way.

“It was definitely quite tough but I would most certainly do it again and am planning to take part in the Virgin London Marathon next year.”

Norwood supports people with learning disabilities in Barnet as well as families in need.
