Big effort for cancer charity

Brighton Marathon runners Martin Garrard and Andrew Graveling have topped the £3,300 mark in their efforts to help cancer.
The weight training buddies took part in the 26-mile race on April 15 to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
The pair chose Cancer Research UK because they had both lost family and friends to cancer.
Martin said the last few miles of the race had been really tough as both had been carrying injuries on the day.
But he said: “Giving up never entered our heads. We dug in and finished it.”
He added: “The crowd were fantastic, including family members, cheering us on all the way.
The total so far is £3,380, which is triple their target and more.
Martin said: “The support and generosity from people has overwhelmed us.
“We would like to thank everyone who wished us well and everyone who kindly donated to a very worthy cause.”
Andrew is a local postman and Martin owns Holt Fish Bar.
