A WOMAN from the Isle of Wight will run 30 miles this weekend on behalf of local charity KissyPuppy, which supports end of life for children's families.

Kirsten Armiger rediscovered her love for running after being unable to work as a result of the pandemic.

KissyPuppy, a charity close to her heart, was created by close friend Gemma — the mother of Sophie Rolf, who sadly lost her life in November 2013 after being diagnosed with a brain tumour.

Kirsten said: "I have decided to set myself a challenge and run 30 miles in one day to raise some money for this amazing charity.

"I would be extremely grateful to anyone who can show support and make a small donation to help me reach my target."

Kirsten has smashed her £250 target, raising more than £1,100 to date.

She will take on the challenge this Saturday (April 10).

Those wishing to donate and support her efforts can do so by visiting JustGiving and searching for Kirsten Armiger.
