Does anyone have any news?
Thanks for the kind comments. I am overwhelmed by the donations she is receiving on her page. She was a very popular girl. I've donated. I will have a look at the comments. I'm hopefully going to see her sister in a couple of days. I'm sure she'll take some comfort in the kindess everyone is showing.
I know what you mean about the people that helped Claire after she'd collapsed. I've been thinking of them too, and everyone else that helped/witnessed what had happened. So sad for everyone involved.
Wow... it's gone up to £39k in the last hour! One heart warming thing in this whole tragedy.
Poor girl, I daren't think what she must have felt like to be so close to the finish and all of a sudden feeling like you're really in trouble.
I saw the paramedics trying to revive her as I ran past - can't get the picture out of my head now...
Listened to Radio 4 this morning. They said that she chose Samaritans because her mum had been a volunteer for over 20 years. Samaritans were interviewed and they will ring-fence the donations and discuss with the victim's parents any particular Samaritan's initiatives that they might like to see the money go to and dedicate the projects to Claire, which seems a really nice gesture.
Over £343k now.
The Mount Kilimanjaro trip was in aid of the Royal Air Force charity I think.
The Telegraph have reported that she ran in memory of her brother who died from an overdose at the age of 25............. Doesn't bare thinking about what her family are going through right now.

Mark I hope that VLM see what has happened and actually award not a finishing medal but some other medal for raising the most amount of money from running the london marathon,
or maybe make one of her favoured charities their charity of the year next year in her memory.
I'm slightly in awe of the British public at this point in time - £570k. That is an amazing amount of money. Justgiving have confirmed they will be donating their fees too.
