Running for Linda Norgrove Foundation

Five runners from Harris are more than half way through their training programme in preparation for the Rotterdam Marathon in early April.

They have chosen to support the Linda Norgrove Foundation, a charity which was set up following her tragic death in Afghanistan in October 2010. The Foundation was started by John and Lorna Norgrove, who live in Lewis, in their daughter’s memory and provides funding to further the type of work that Linda was involved in with women, families and children in Afghanistan.

Anyone wishing to encourage the runners and support this locally based charity helping to build prosperity and stability in Afghanistan may do so in a number of ways. Clear instructions are given for donations through the Linda Norgrove Foundation website through the Virgin Money Giving facility. Alternatively, boxes for cash donations from friends in Harris will be available nearer the time of the event in Tarbert or may be made directly to any one of the runners pictured!
