Justine and her supporters ran 10k, swim 10 lengths and then cycled 10 miles... in under three hours!

Justine, who works at Tia's school, St John's RC Primary in Padiham, set herself a £200 target but she raised around £2,000 which will be donated to Derian House children's hospice who helped Tia's family to care for her.
