Press Report: Cash Rolls in to Charity Thanks to Wheelers

LEANNE WHEELER has raised more than £1,000 for Maggie’s Centres.

Leanne ran and jogged 50 miles in four weeks supported by her husband Nick, and daughters Harriet and Eleanor who are both West Cheshire Athletic Club members.

“Fifty Miles – it wasn’t fast or pretty and I’m definitely built for comfort, not speed,” Leanne said.

“But I ran and jogged 50 miles in four weeks. It’s been a challenge but I’ve enjoyed it and I’m so pleased to have raised funds for Maggie’s Centres who continue to support cancer patients and their families during the pandemic. Thank you to all my friends for the generous sponsorship.”

Leanne completed the 50 miles challenge alongside Nick, Harriet and Leanne, pounding the pavements mainly in the dark.

Maggie’s Centres offer the best possible support for free to anyone with cancer and anyone can visit a centre or join the online community. They help people take back control when cancer turns life upside down, by helping to provide professional support for anything from treatment, side effects, to money worries.

THIS year’s English Schools Track & Field Championships has been extended to three days.

The fixture is scheduled to be held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 9, 10, and 11, at Sport City, Manchester.

The plan is to hold the Senior (U19s) Championships on Friday, July 9, the Intermediates (U17s) on Saturday, July 10, and the Juniors (U15s) on Sunday, July 11.

Each day of competition will start at 12.30pm and be finished by 6pm.
