Writer Andrew Smith running 10k for The Lily Foundation

On Sunday 4 October, Andrew Smith (writer of the 1980 Doctor Who serial Full Circle, and numerous Big Finish audio stories) is running the 10k Great Scottish Run in Glasgow's city centre to raise money for The Lily Foundation, a charity which supports research into Mitochondrial Disease and helps families affected by it.

Writing on his fundraising page, Smith said:

"This charity is close to my heart. It's named in memory of Lily, who would have gone to school with my daughters. Tragically, she was diagnosed with Mitochondrial Disease and died at just eight months. I would be extremely grateful for your support. Any donation of any size is welcome. You will be helping a truly worthy cause."

People can donate via Andrew Smith's JustGiving page, and visit The Lily Foundation's website for more details about Mitochondrial Disease and the charity which works so tirelessly to fight it.
