Lots of Isle of Wight runners took on last Sunday's London Marathon in aid of charity - including Ben Collins, Laura Head and Stewart Shepherd.

All of these runners travelled to London to take part in the live race - and they all had a memorable time.

Laura Head, from Ryde, ran the live race in London for MIND and has raised over £1,500 so far.

Isle of Wight County Press:

Children at Bembridge Primary School were encouraged to wear blue in support of Laura's marathon efforts for MIND.

Laura said: “With the amazing support from friends and family, I was able to complete the 26.2 miles in 4 hours and 48 minutes.

“A big thank you to Bembridge CE Primary School — where my daughters go — for allowing the children and staff to wear blue for the day and raising just over £240 towards the charity.”

She also thanked the team at Northbrooke House care home in Havenstreet, where she works, for all their support.

Stewart Shepherd of Newport took part in the live race in London and finished in 4 hours 12 minutes.

Stewart was running in aid of IWASBAH, the Isle of Wight Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus because his great nephew, Joey, was born with the condition five years ago and has undergone many ops on his spine, brain and bladder since he was six hours old.

Stewart has raised over £600 to date.
