AN intrepid pair of teenagers from Pedmore had a runaway success in fundraising for Haiti earthquake victims.

Ebony Churchill, aged 15 , was so moved by shocking images of the disaster she decided to raise cash by running from Stourbridge to Molineux football stadium in Wolverhampton, home of her beloved Wolverhampton Wanderers FC.

On Monday February 15, Ebony, along with fellow Pedmore Technology College pupil Adam Willetts, also aged 15, completed the run to raise £600 for the appeal.

Ebony, from Iron Bridge Walk, said: “After seeing a video of the devistation caused by Haiti’s earthquake we needed to do our bit, I have never run this far before, it is 13 or 14 miles and took us two hours and ten minutes - I thought it would take about four hours.

“It was fun, quite a lot of people waved at us and honked their horns, on our arrival at the Molineux we were invited in for a coffee and hope to get a mention in Saturday’s program.”
