Focus: Fundraising - Doing a runner

Model Sophie Anderton and TV presenter Tamara Czartoryski-Borbon will be running in this year's Flora London Marathon to raise funds for the National Autistic Society (NAS).

The pair, who are sponsored by Vittel, will join an anticipated 32,000 entrants for the 26-mile race from Greenwich to St James's Park. Funds raised by the pair will help the society to continue its work with individuals and families affected by autism. An estimated 535,000 people in the UK have autism. Anderton, a former contestant on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, said: "We're really looking forward to running the marathon for the NAS. We're a bit nervous because we've never run a marathon before, but we're pleased to be helping such a fantastic cause."
