A fund raising mission has been launched by a man who is running the London Marathon in 2015.

Stewart Harrison is running in memory of his Mum Carole who died in 2011 of Lung Cancer.

Mr Harrison, is running for Roy Castle’s Lung Cancer Foundation and now needs to raise £1900 to secure his place in the event.

“I’ve always been fairly active but never really done any running but the London Marathon is such an iconic event I decided I wanted to take on the challenge,” said Mr Harrison of Walton Highway.

He joined Fenland Running Club in January 2014 and lost 3.5st to get fit for the race.

“The club have been really friendly and helped massively in me attempting this challenge. A fantastic club and very proud to be part of it. I’m in the best shape since leaving school I’m aiming for a time of under four hours,” he said.

So far to raise funds he has hired the Light Cinema in Wisbech and put on a charity movie morning for children showing the Disney movie sing along Frozen.
