A Monmouthshire woman rounded off a series of 5k parkruns in Ross-on-Wye to raise funds for charity.

Mrs Fiona Creasey set herself the task of completing at least 50 weekly parkruns during 2019 and was delighted to finish her challenge in Herefordshire.

Inventively, she used the first letter at each location to spell the name of her chosen charity, Target Ovarian Cancer, for a series of runs.

Starting in Tewkesbury, Fiona, who lives near Monmouth, also ran at venues ranging from Victoria in Canada to Trellissick in Cornwall and Aberdare in the Welsh valleys.

Fiona has now raised almost £4,000, including Gift Aid, for the charity and will be collecting donations until Saturday, January 18th.
