Sam, who is deputy manager of Great Cornard Nursery and Pre-School, said: "They enable children to have fun, learn and heal from trauma through play.

"I've raised money for two of these now, it's a charity that's quite close to what I do in working with children."

Mum-of-two Sam will be running the marathons from Thursday June 27 to Saturday July 6 and was feeling quietly confident.

"I've done 20 marathons to date but this is definitely my biggest challenge so far," she said.

Donations can be made at Sam's JustGiving page.
