A woman whose supporters helped raise more than £1 million for charity after her death in this year's London Marathon will be buried next to her brother today.
Family and friends of Claire Squires will attend a private funeral service at St Andrew's Church in North Kilworth, Leicestershire, this afternoon after she collapsed and died less than a mile from the finishing line of the 26.2-mile course on Birdcage Walk near Buckingham Palace on April 22.
The 30-year-old was running for the Samaritans, in recognition of the work done by her mother Cilla, who had volunteered for the charity for 24 years.
Donations made in memory of 30-year-old Claire Squires have broken the £1million mark on the same day her funeral has been announced.
The 30-year-old who died during Sunday's London Marathon has been called an "inspiration" and "incredible".
Donations to the charity of Claire Squires, the young woman who died in the London marathon, have reached almost £220,000.
