THE charity work carried out by one of the members of vocal harmony group The Overtones has inspired a woman from Woodville to get behind the same cause.
Christina Ridgway started fund-raising for the Pituitary Foundation after the charity’s profile was raised by the group when they did a sponsored zip slide to raise money.
The 27-year-old fan and her friend Alison Smith, who lives in Ashbourne, are now preparing to take part in a fun run to boost funds and raise awareness for the organisation, and they have also planned another event later on in the year.
The duo are currently in training for the Ashbourne Half Marathon and Fun Run, on September 15.
Miss Ridgway told the Mail: “This is a personal challenge for myself has I have not ran this much since i was at high school about 13 years ago, loads of training to do but all worth it.”
They are hoping raise around £400 for the charity, which supports families affected by problems with the pituitary gland.
