A MOTHER whose son died from a bacteria infection is organising a charity run tomorrow.

Tania Holmes lost her son Blake in 2009 after a condition called group B strep went undetected.

She has been campaigning for the infection to be routinely screened for during pregnancy testing.

She launched the event Stomp alongside the charity Group B Step Support to help raise awareness of the infection.

Tania said: “The idea is to help raise awareness and to get people talking about Group B Strep infections.

“Group B Strep is not routinely screened for during pregnancy and is something I had absolutely no idea about until I had Blake.”

The event takes place in Victoria Park, Worthing, tomorrow, starting at 9.30am.

The Strep B Stomp – over a distance of either 3km or 5km - is about having fun whilst raising money for a very important cause, said Tania.

It’s suitable for all and there will be family fun activities too.

Tickets are £12 for adults and £6 for children or over 65s with under fives going free.

They are available from www.gbss.org.uk/worthingstomp

Jane Plumb MBE, chief executive at Group B Strep Support, said: “We are so grateful for Tania’s support, and for her energy and determination.”
