WO1 Wanda 'Fish' Barkess - Marathon Profile
We were lucky enough to catch up with another of our wonderful marathon runners this week: WO1 Wanda 'Fish' Barkess. Fish, originally from Burnley, Lancashire is currently the Staff Master Driver for HQ London District and has been in the Army for 21 years.
She told us: "I am very proud to be running the London Marathon for TFT and for the Jack K Johnstone foundation. TFT do an amazing job of supporting the troops for which we are all grateful.
The Jack K Johnstone foundation is in memory of a brave little lad who lost his fight with Cystic fibrosis just before Christmas. I have raised £700 already and I aim to raise more."
And when asked about her training she said: "The training is going okay but to be honest I just want to get round the course and raise some cash. I can't wait for the day and I will be very proud to run along side HQ London District soldiers representing TFT"
