Road run for Penny

A TEAM of runners are taking to the roads of Belper and Heage this Saturday, April 2, to raise money for local woman Penny Wheeler, who suffers from two life-threatening illnesses.

Danielle Brown, of The Spanker Inn pub in Nether Heage, is leading the 10km run, with all funds raised going into Penny’s Fund.

The fund was set up last year to help Penny, who suffers from scleroderma and pulmonary fibrosis.

Danielle said: “The run will be a lot of fun. We will have runners, bikers and horse riders taking part!”

To sponsor Danielle or take part, ring her on 01773 853222.
