SKYSPORTS TV presenter Charlie Webster will set off on her 250-mile charity run from Burton Albion’s Pirelli Stadium on Sunday.

Over seven days she will be visiting 40 football clubs to raise money for Women’s Aid - the domestic violence charity for which she is a patron.

She will finish her run at West Ham’s Upton Park on Saturday, February 1 and is hoping to raise £100,000 in the process.

Earlier this month the 31-year-old revealed that she had been sexually abused by her athletics coach when she was a teenager, but did not know she could report him.

She said: “I am proud to be taking on this Big Challenge to raise money for Woman’s Aid and to work with football clubs to raise awareness of domestic violence.

Anyone wishing to sponsor Charlie can do so by visiting www.justgiving.com/charliesbigchallenge.
