A first-time marathon runner whose father lost his sight raised more than £2,400 for Norfolk's sight loss charity.
Alice Sizeland, who runs the beachfront Trendies café in Sheringham with her partner Andy Trend, only entered the London Marathon on a whim.
She completed it in five hours, four minutes, narrowly missing her target of five hours, raising a total of £2433.06 for the Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind (NNAB).
Ms Sizeland's father Robin, also of Sheringham, lost his sight through illness two years ago, and now takes part in a variety of activities organised by the NNAB in north Norfolk, including sailing.
NNAB's director of business development Clive Evans said: "We are really grateful to Alice for undertaking the punishing training regime and completing her first marathon, and to all those who generously sponsored her."
Ms Sizeland has entered both the Manchester and London Marathons in 2020.
