A fundraising trio are taking part in the London Marathon and Virtual London Marathon this Sunday (October 3) to raise money for local charity, Road Victims Trust (RVT).
The charity provides emotional and practical support to the relatives of those killed on the road.
Steve Frost is running the Virtual London Marathon in memory of his son, Harry Frost, lost on the road in 2020.
“I’m not sure how our family would’ve coped without the fantastic support of RVT,” he said.
Inspector Richard Barker, a police officer, is running his first marathon.
“Invaluable support is given to bereaved families by trained counsellors from RVT," he said.
John Bennett will also be running the marathon virtually.
