Elaine Buckett

Former Barnt Green Parish Council Chairman Elaine Buckett is back in training in preparation for this year’s London Marathon, which she will run to raise funds for the Parkinson’s Disease Society.  

Elaine is running in memory of a friend who died of the disease a few years ago. “The training is demanding, but remembering that my friend could not even lift her little finger motivates me,” she says.

Elaine ran the Tewkesbury half-marathon last year for the charity, despite not having undertaken any serious athletic activity until the age of 60.

She is trying to get as much sponsorship as possible: pick up a form at Meadow Farm Butchers or Deli on the Green, or donate at http://www.justgiving.com/elainebuckett
