A PAIR of friends have managed to clock up some miles in trying to raise £1,000 for Healthy Young Minds charity.

Jemma Dransfield, who runs Rossendale Dance and Drama Centre along with Louise Whittaker, did a challenge to run four miles every four hours over 48 hours meaning they covered 48 miles at the weekend.

Jemma said: “During lockdown Louise and I had been doing running. There have been children struggling with mental health because of the pandemic and hopefully this money will go towards helping them. We cannot believe we raised so much. We set a target of £500 because we know people are struggling but we are overwhelmed getting that amount.”
