Run for hospice.

An oakes woman is running the London Marathon to help her sister's work with terminally ill people.

Rosie Barber (pictured), of New Hey Road, will take on the 26-mile course on April 22 to raise money for St Joseph's Hospice in London.

She explained: "My sister Carolyne teaches palliative care to nurses at the hospice so I'd like to help out. I want to raise more than pounds 1,000."

The 29-year-old took up running two years ago, completing the Great North Run in 2005. Rosie has been training since the start of the year, running five times a week, including a 15-mile jog along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, between Bradford and Yeadon.

She said: "The run itself is tiring, but afterwards I feel great."
