AlexOn Sunday 17th September, 19 year old Alex Archer took part in the Bristol Half Marathon and raised money for Contact. So far she's raised over £700!

Alex said: "My family has worked closely with Contact for many years, as my brother has a disability. It's a charity close to my heart.

"I've been running for a while and this year decided to take part in the Bristol Half Marathon for Contact  - it's my way of saying thanks to the charity for all the advice and help my family has received from them when we needed a little extra support.

"I think Contact is a really important charity and it's great to know that the money I've raised will help other families with disabled children around the UK. More and more families come to Contact each year looking for advice and information.

"I am so pleased to have raised so much for Contact and I know that this money will make a real difference to the families they support.
