Brave Joanne’s fundraising run

Have your say

A COURAGEOUS woman who has beaten cancer three times is planning to run a 10k race to raise charity cash.

Joanne Lockley, aged 40, of North Wingfield, Chesterfield, is raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support by running in the Dronfield 10k Run on March 17.

She will be taking part in the race along with 16 friends.

Joanne said “Macmillan helped me so much and I want to give something back as people don’t realise how they help until you really need them. And I just don’t know what I would have done without them.”

She added: “I am by no means a runner but I never gave up during what happened to me and whether I run, walk or crawl – I will get to that finish line.”
