A hairdresser who took inspiration from her late father when she ran the London Marathon has raised more than £4,000 for charity.

Louise Green, who owns the 
Anne Marie hair salon in 
Swaffham, took part in Sunday’s 26.2-mile event in aid of the Anthony Nolan Trust.

She ran in memory of her dad, Paul Green, who lost his three-year battle with lymphoma six years ago, and completed the distance in four hours and 50 minutes.

The 28-year-old said: “It was an emotionally tough day but the best experience of my life.

“Dad left me his great determination which got me through the 26.2 miles – he fought cancer for three years, I thought ‘this is just five hours of torture, I can do this’. It is amazing what your body is capable of. I want to say a massive thank you to my family, friends and clients, without them this wouldn’t have been possible.”
