Anna Bassil, who last year ran The London Marathon in a full cake costume, will be taking part again, this year dressed as a teddy bear.

She said: "I wanted to help fundraise and give families something to do over the school summer holidays, so I have organised a Teddy Bear Trail.

"Twenty-seven businesses around St Albans, including The Pudding Stop, Flowerbox and Dress up & Dance have sponsored a bear which they will display in their windows."

Anna has created a map with a list of locations so that entrants can look for the teddies, note down each bear's name and submit their answers for a chance to win one of them.

Anna is raising money for A Smile for a Child, a small charity that provides grants for disabled children to help them participate in sports.
