An Ely singer and music teacher will take on her first half-marathon on Sunday in aid of the East Anglian Air Ambulance charity.
Ali Driver, who is also known as ‘Mrs Melody’, said: “I’ve always enjoyed running so I set myself a goal in January to train hard and apply for a place in the City of Norwich Half Marathon.
“The training has gone brilliantly with the huge help of ‘Let’s Run Girls Ely’, a running group for ladies that I joined this year.
“Thanks to them I’ve managed to go from 5k to half-marathon distance in these few months.”
Ali said she chose the charity because it is close to her heart: “It is in desperate need of further funding and has been a life saver to people I know.
“Any donation possibly could help to save the life of someone you know.”
Ali teaches music in more than 40 schools and nurseries across Cambridgeshire.
