FIVE intrepid runners who pounded the streets of London at the weekend piled up the pounds for Bromsgrove-based Primrose Hospice.

The athletic quintet who comprise of sisters Sam Webster and Kate Low, Sara Phillips, Hayley Young and Bridget Haw all completed Sunday's Virgin Money London Marathon.

The 'Fab Five' have already raised close on £10,000 for Primrose Hospice and are hoping more people will support them - especially as the Hospice needs to raise £1.75million to keep the charity's services free for people with life limiting conditions.

Anna Wilson, Primrose Hospice community fundraiser, said: " We are so proud of them all.

"Each one of them has personal reasons as to why the charity means so much to them.

"They endured months of gruelling training while fundraising for us."

Bridget Haw led the quintet home in a time of 5 hours 14 minutes, closely followed by Sara Phillips in 5 hours 20, while Hayley Young clocked 5 hours 38.

Sisters Sam Webster and Kate Low couldn't be separated as they both crossed the line in 6 hours 18 mins.
