A TEENAGER from Horsham has raised more than £340 in the British 10k London Run for the Sussex Air Ambulance.

Laura Fitch, 19, of Farhalls Crescent, took on the challenge along with more than 46,000 other runners, and managed to finish in 51 minutes.

Laura said: “When I got to the finish line I enjoyed it so much I told my parents I would love to run it again.

“It was a fantastic day.”

Laura is hoping to raise even more money with a charity music night at the LaserHub in Crawley on Sunday July 24 from 7pm until 10pm.

You can also help to raise money for the Sussex Air Ambulance by buying raffle tickets from Brand News in Roffey, La Source in East Street, Frames and Pictures in Piries Place, P&H Motorcycles in Crawley and LaserHub.
