A NURSERY worker is today in training for the London Marathon, as she prepares to raise funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Amy Knott, 27, has decided to run for the charity after her 24-year-old sister, Laura, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last year.
Amy, of Ipswich, hopes to raise at least £750 and she is also organising a disco in March which she hopes will help her edge closer to the target.
She said: “We were shocked [at the diagnosis], but almost relieved, because Laura had been worried it was a brain tumour.”
Amy, a nursery nurse, said that her training is going well and she has already completed a 13-mile run.
