Lucy has raised over £32,000 for charity since her father died four years ago
A Gloucestershire fund-raiser who has run over 600 miles across four deserts has won an award for her achievements.
Lucy Rivers-Bulkeley, from Moreton-in-Marsh, became the first ever woman to run across the Gobi, Atacama, Sahara and Antarctic deserts in one year.
Inspired by the death of her father four years ago, Lucy has raised over £32,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
She has now been awarded the Endurance Fund-raiser of the Year honour at the 2011 JustGiving Awards in London.
"I was very surprised but honoured to be short listed for the award," said Lucy, who attended the ceremony at the Emirates Stadium.
Other award categories include Most Creative Fundraiser of the Year, Most Creative Charity of the Year and Celebrity Fundraiser of the Year.
Lucy's charity efforts are far from over and she has plans to undertake a 'mountain ultramarathon' in the summer.
"I'm taking part in the Ultra-Trail de Mont Blanc in August and then another 155 mile (250km) race in Nepal in November," she added.
