Claire Bruus has worked tirelessly to raise funds for a local Stafford hospice, Katharine House.
Dedicating a significant amount of her own time, she has organised a number of events to raise money for this charity that means so much to the community.
This has also involved a great deal of training to take part in sponsored physical events. She did the Nijmegen March challenge in Holland in July. This saw her complete a 100-mile walk in four days and raise more than £3,100 for the charity.
With a local primary school, Claire also participates in many other fundraising activities.
All activities are personally funded so every penny she raises goes towards this very good cause.
