A Lichfield vet has raised almost £2,500 for charity by running the London Marathon.

Noelle Lowry, who works at Pool House Equine Clinic, ran in aid of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons Trust and beat her fundraising target of £1,500, to raise money for the Trust to use in its work to support veterinary education and research, and in providing library and information services.

She finished 4,594 out of the 11,037 women runners in the London Marathon, taking four hours and 36 minutes to run the 26.2 mile long course – and beating her time in last year’s New York marathon.

Noelle said:

“A lot of people chipped in at the last minute – my mum has been organising people back home in Ballymena and my friends and colleagues have all put their hands in their pockets – so a huge thank you to all of them.

“I’m a great fan of the RCVS Trust. It’s not one of the big charity brands but the grant funding for veterinary research can really make a difference to animals – and we can all use the library and online resources – so I wanted to give it some help.”
