Super slimmer Liz Nicolaou is putting her exercise regime to good use by running a half marathon to raise money for children’s charities.

The mum-of-one, who works at energy firm UK Power Networks in Potters Bar, lost five stone two years ago and has since raised thousands of pounds for charity through running and walking long distances. Last week she completed her longest run yet – 13 miles from home to work – to raise money for Children In Need.

The 39-year-old programme manager ran from her home in Cheshunt to Barnet and then finally finishing back at the UK Power Networks office in Darkes Lane, Potters Bar.

Liz said: “Normally I drive the 13 miles to work but I decided to run it – via Barnet – to raise money for Children in Need.

“My previous charity runs were in aid of Cancer Research as I lost my father to the disease a few years ago but I decided to do this run for another cause close to my heart.

“I enjoyed the run but I think I’ll stick to driving to work in the future.”

UK Power Networks, which delivers electricity to eight million customers across East Anglia, London and the South East, will contribute £100 to Liz’s £350 total as part of a scheme to help employees’ fundraising efforts.

The company supports staff and the charities that are important to them, by match funding the money they raise up to a value of £100. It expects to spend £50,000 on the match funding scheme this year.
