Our director, Charlotte Carson has been interviewed three times recently on BBC Hereford & Worcester. Her first appearance had her calling out for more London Marathon runners to be part of #TeamLOOK. This was followed up by BBC H&W when they heard we had found a grand total of 26 runners, and then she was back to talk about guide running and a campaign to save the athletics track in Hereford from closure.

Thank you to the radio station for being so supportive. Listen out for the final lines of the second interview – we are so thankful to Malcolm, Tammy, Stewart, and all the team at BBC H&W for your part in helping visually impaired young people to thrive.
