A COLERAINE family is training hard in preparation for next month’s Belfast Marathon.

Drew and Alison McAfee and their daughter Annie are taking part in the May Day challenge to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care and World Challenge Malawi.

This summer, Annie, who is a fifth form pupil at Coleraine High School, will visit Malawi as part of the World Challenge charity. Annie is one of 18 teenagers who will take part in community work in Malawi.

Drew and Alison will be joined on their relay team by Rev Donard Collins from Killowen Parish Church, his son Andrew Collins and Jamie McCloy.

Annie will be joined on her relay team by members of the World Challenge expedition.

Drew said: “ Marie Curie Cancer care is a charity that is very close to the McAfee family.

“The dedicated nursing team helped my father-in-law in his last weeks at home.

“We would like to repay the team for their support.”

The family are hoping to raise £4,000 which will be divided between the two charities. If you would like to help them reach their target contact Drew or Alison on 70321878 or 07926967091.
