Tamarisk Morris is determined to run the London Marathon to raise money for SCCWID, an amazing Oxford charity. The name SCCWID stands for Sophie’s Campaign for the Children’s Ward for Interesting Things to Do and was set up in 1997, by Sophie Watson, aged 14, who was being treated for cancer in the John Radcliffe Hospital, in Oxford.
