Lucy Beauvallet (Nh. 2008-14), who many of you will remember came second in BBC1's Young Apprentice competition in 2013, is running this year's London Marathon for the charity Blind Children UK.
Blind children UK help children and their families tackle the challenges of young sight loss so that they can enjoy their childhood and realise their potential as adults by equipping them with the skills, confidence and support they need.
Lucy writes, "From a non-runner to a marathon runner in just 6 months hasn't come without it's injuries nor it's mental and physical challenges. I'm now three weeks away from the starting gun and in the absence of many friends not drowning in student loans I am spreading my net and asking for any kind gestures to support this worthy charity."
