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."
