Father and daughter to tackle London Marathon
A father and daughter from Necton, near Swaffham, will be taking part in the London Marathon this weekend to raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
Blaine, 50, and Frankie Upton, 20, will be running in memory of Blaine’s father, and Frankie’s grandfather, Donald Upton, who died in November 2009.
Throughout his illness, the pair completed a number of runs to raise awareness and support the charity, but this will be Miss Upton’s first maratahon.
Her father completed the London Marathon two years ago in three hours 49 minutes and is keen to beat that time this year.
Together they hope to raise �3,500 for the charity.
