An Oswestry woman has raised thousands-of-pounds for her London Marathon run this Sunday (April 22) which will be donated to a local charity.

Catherine Jackson has managed to raise more than £2,500 for the Oswestry and District Stroke Club through donations and by organising events for her run.

Cath’s car and bike show, Dom Kelly gig at The Greyhound Inn, and Stroke Club bingo evening were all huge successes, raising £1601.25 between them.

If you would like to donate to Catherine, visit and search “Catherine Jackson” to find her page.
