A super slimmer who lost more than six stones is to tackle her biggest hurdle in aid of a charity close to her heart.

Debbie Crewe, from Castleford, is planning to run the London Marathon to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

She lost her mum Wendy Crewe to skin cancer in 2002 after a five-year battle with the disease. She was 40 years old.

Ms Crewe gained a lot of weight following her mum’s death before losing more than six stone with the help of Slimming World.

She has already taken part in the Race for Life in Wakefield but admits the marathon on April 24 will be her biggest challenge yet.

Lisa Millett, Cancer Research UK’s spokesperson for Yorkshire, said: “It’s thanks to the support of people like Debbie that we are able to go on making progress in the fight against cancer.

“There is still time for anyone who already has a place in the Virgin Money London Marathon to join our fantastic team of runners. Or if you are inspired by Debbie’s experience why not try one of our other runs?”
