A sales manager for a Norfolk based developer has raised more than £6,000 for charity after running the London Marathon.
Clare Cornish is the sales manager for Watton-based Abel Homes and raised the funds for Dementia Revolution, a joint campaign launched by Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK.
More than 2,000 runners joined the cause and she complete the race in four hours, 20 minutes.
Ms Cornish's grandmother lived with the disease and three years ago her father was diagnosed with the condition.
Abel Homes managing director Paul LeGrice said: "We are extremely proud of Clare for taking on such a massive challenge, and despite fighting injury during her training, completing the marathon in a tremendous time.
