A WOMAN from Bodelwyddan took part in the London Marathon to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Angela Victoria Roberts completed the marathon for the first time last Sunday (October 2) to fundraise for the charity.

Angela’s grandson was born with cystic fibrosis four and a half years ago, so the charity holds a place close to her heart.

Angela finished in a time of 6hr 8min 42sec, and was delighted with her progress.

“I started running two years ago and did it from couch to 5k and just carried on from there!

“Cystic fibrosis comes with challenges, affecting our physical health, mental wellbeing and how we choose to live our lives.

“But our community is uniting towards the ultimate goal of effective treatment for all.

“Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the charity uniting people to stop cystic fibrosis.”

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition which causes sticky mucus to build up in the lungs and digestive system, and affects more than 10,800 people in the UK.

One in 25 people carries the gene that causes it, usually without knowing.

Angela has raised more than £1,000 through her London Marathon run. To donate, click here.
