A GIRL has raised more than £550 for charity by running a 5k with her mum.

Five-year-old Effie Bradbury, from Kirkbymoorside, ran around the town with her mum Samantha in aid of Cancer Research.

Samantha said: “I’m so so incredibly proud of Effie for completing this challenge, especially given our first mile was uphill.

“Thank you to everyone that cheered her on as they passed. It helped massively when she was feeling like she couldn’t carry on.”

Effie completed the run in 47 minutes. Samantha added: “Much love and thank you to everyone that has donated. Effie is so chuffed with herself and I honestly couldn’t be any prouder if I tried.”
