Two Cumbrian nurses have raised over £3,000 for charity after running the London Marathon last weekend.

Cardiology nurse Charlotte Treloar completed the race in 4 hours and 36 minutes, raising almost £2,000 so far and staff nurse Hannah West completed in 4 hours and 57 minutes and raised over £1,000. Both work at North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust.

Charlotte Treloar is raising money for the British Heart Foundation. Her partner’s niece, Phoebe, had open heart surgery at just two weeks old, and is one of the youngest people to receive such an operation.

Hannah, who works at the Assessment and Therapy Centre (ATC) ran to raise funds for Stroke Association in memory of her granny. Also, there are many stroke clinics in ATC so this charity is very close to Hannah’s heart.

Charlotte said:

I’d like to say thanks to everyone who supported and encouraged me, especially staff and patients on the cardiology floor, who all helped raise around £500."
