Year 8 Lucy Heaton is a keen swimmer as well as enjoying running, and so when the Great South Run was cancelled, she decided to run to raise money for the Petersfield Open Air Pool.

She pledged to complete 25 2.5k runs in 48 days, and finished last weekend, raising £360 so far – way beyond her original target of £100!  If you would like to help her boost this still further, visit

Lucy said, “I absolutely love the pool and have been swimming there for 4 years now, and I hope to get a part time job there when I am 13.  I've done swimming lessons, rookie life-saving lessons, school trips, swimming days with friends, and general days out to swim. I was very sad that the pool couldn't open this year but I wanted to do something positive in the meantime.”
