Charles Earl is running in this weekend's London Marathon, raising money for two charities - Cancer Research UK and the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

Charles writes:

"I am running for these two charities as I have lost loved ones and friends from both of these illnesses. In 1982 my Dad died from MND after a three year spell of the illness. More recently my late wife Jackie died in 2015 with cancer related organ failure. I am running this marathon to raise funds for both of these charities to help with the fight for a cure."
