TIK Tok sensation, Sophie Liard, the internationally renowned ‘The Folding Lady’, has raised over £8,000 by conquering this year’s TCS London Marathon to support Friends of the Elderly, the charity which runs care homes, day care services and a grant-giving service for older people living in poverty throughout England.
Sophie chose Friends of the Elderly as her cause due to her strong family ties with the charity, and when she learned of the charity’s grant-giving service for vulnerable older people, she decided it was the perfect cause to run the demanding 26.2 miles for.

Sophie started her gruelling training programme back in September 2022 and with help and guidance from her trainer, Sophie Bankes, all her hard work, endurance and commitment paid off as she completed the iconic marathon in six hours and 55 seconds.
