A Louth secondary school has given a former student a helping hand towards her fundraising goal after she ran the London Marathon in April.
Lian Harrison, a past student of Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College, ran the marathon in aid of eating disorder charity BEAT after she lost close friend Abigail Guiblin last year.
The charity specialises in helping those with eating disorders and it was Lian’s aim to raise as much money for this worthwhile cause as she could.
Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College was proud to sponsor Lian in her quest by holding a non-uniform day.
Half of the funds raised went to Comic Relief and the other half was handed to her in the form of a cheque, to the tune of an amazing £852.70.
“The course was punishing but its times like this when we can see the benefits,” she said.
Lian was proud to accept the cheque from the Louth campus’s vice principal Mike Eyre and student Shane Lee.
