Schoolgirl's hours supporting 10 in 10 runners

Over 900 runners are competing in the Windermere Marathon. They'll run the 26.2 miles round England's largest lake from Brathay Hall near Ambleside.

The runners include the 10 in 10 runners who will be completing their 10th lap of the marathon in 10 days, raising over £76,000 for the Brathay Trust.

One of those cheering them on will be Holly Glaister from Hawkshead Primary School, who has spent several hours over the last 10 days following the 10 in 10 runners' progress and waiting outside her home to cheer them on.

She also gave one of the runners, who she saw was struggling, the entire contents of her piggy bank - about £10.
