A tutor from Dagenham has raised nearly £3,000 for a blind school in Liverpool by running the London Marathon.

Titi Windapo was fundraising for St Vincent’s School for Sensory Impairment.

She said: “Although the hot weather made the race more challenging, supporters lined up the whole route cheering us on.

“It was just so amazing and made the experience enjoyable and pleasurable.

“You can accomplish anything you set your heart to do. Just start and keep moving forward until your goal becomes a reality.

“I would like to thank all those who gave and donated so generously. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”

Titi completed the race in five hours 20 minutes. It was her first ever marathon.

Her donation will go towards “much needed” equipment, she said, and she is pleased to have raised money that will be used in education.
