Congratulations to Claire Reece, who took part in the Cambridge half marathon on Sunday 4th March in aid of the dreamdrops charity, run by Cambridgeshire Community Services NHS Trust.

Claire's son Hugo is a regular user of the children’s unit at Hinchingbrooke Hospital and the dreamdrops charity is very close to their hearts.

Claire said: "16 months ago I decided to take up running wanting to get fit. After a few months of training I found out I was pregnant but continued to train as long as I could.

"After having my son Etienne 7 months ago I went back to training and 6 weeks later ran the Cambridge half marathon! It was a huge challenge but I wanted to give something back to the wonderful team on the Children’s Unit."

Anne-Marie Hamilton, Chair of dreamdrops said: "What a wonderful achievement just 7 months after having her baby. The money raised will go towards buying those little extras for the unit; we cannot thank Claire enough for her support."
