Well-known local football player Mark Wales is running the London Marathon and has been sponsored by Plasgran.

The ex-March Town and Wisbech Town footballer said: “After watching last year’s Paralympics and what the disabled people achieved swayed me towards my chosen charity ‘Get Kids Going’ - sports mobility for disabled people.”

Mr and Mrs Carl Waters, owner of Plasgran, a plastic recycling company, have kindly donated £1,000 to his charity.

Wales’s first marathon is in his 11th week of training and it is going well.

He added: “I did my first half-marathon last week in a time of 1 hour and 20 minutes but I know the second half will be a lot harder. I am hoping to get round in under four hours.”

The Virgin Money London Marathon is on April 13. Anyone wishing to sponsor Mark can do so at a secure site at www.justgiving.com/mark-wales1
