Abbababes help raise funds for Break marathon runner at Holt

An Abba-themed 1970s night is aiming to make Money Money Money for a north Norfolk-based charity.

Sarah Woodrow is aiming to run the London Marathon this April in aid of Break, which provides a range of services for vulnerable children and families.

But her preparations are being combined with a battle against a thyroid condition which has left her suffering from bouts of tiredness - along with preparations for her mother's 80th birthday.

Mrs Woodrow, 47, from High Kelling, who runs stress therapy and events businesses, is having treatment for an over-active thyroid which has slowed her down, but is also doing Nordic walking and gym sessions as she prepares for her first ever marathon.

Her sister Sue will be visiting from her home in Australia to support Sarah and mark their mum's milestone birthday - with a family party on board a Mediterreanean cruise.

'My sister will be making sure I run around the decks every day,' said Mrs Woodrow, who is also taking part in the February 26 Break cross country fun run at Stody to help her training.

She needs to raise �1,500 to meet the minimum charity tally for Sheringham-based Break, so is staging a 1970s night at Holt Community Centre on Saturday March 10 at 7.30pm.

It features a two-course dinner, disc raffle, auction and and timeless tunes from the Abbababes, who include her sister-in-law Stacey Wright from Hellesdon.
