A Bexleyheath woman is running the London Marathon to help stop child cruelty is urging other participants to support her in the cause.

Joanna Fuller is taking part for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) on April 21.

The 28-year-old accountant said: “I was lucky enough to enjoy my childhood and had lots of opportunities growing up.

“It’s important to help those not so lucky and make sure children have someone to turn to when their own family are not there for them.”

The deadline for NSPCC charity cases closes on Friday but anyone who has already secured there own place can register with the charity until the day of the race.

NSPCC fundraiser Charli Payne said: “We couldn’t continue to provide our services which are a lifeline to many children without the support of people like Joanna, we wish them luck with their training and the race day itself.”
