More than £400 has been raised for Tom’s Fund and CRY by participants in the Andrew Carter Memorial Mile on Saturday, September 2.

Almost 50 runners took part in the event in Lammas Park, Ealing, which was hosted by Ealing Half Marathon CIC.

“We had a lovely morning in the sun” said Sandra Courtney, for the organisers. “Thank you to all the runners and supporters who attended. We raised the money in just an hour and we hope there’s more to be donated online.”

The event is held each year in memory of Andrew, an Ealing resident who passed away after the 2014 Ealing Half Marathon.

Paul Clabburn said: “Once again we are extremely grateful to all who took part and to Andrew’s parents for donating via Tom’s Fund, thereby supporting local heart screening for young people.”

The next screenings in Ealing will be held in November.
