The group of runners will all take on the London Marathon for the first time in aid of St Elizabeth Hospice.

Ben Fosdike, 24, is running in memory of his brother Royce, who died last year. Chris Coleman chose to run in support of the hospice because his father was cared for there in 2007.

Karen Skene has taken up the challenge in memory of her mother-in-law Jenny, who was cared for by the hospice between 2007 and 2008. Ginny Hibbert’s father Michael was treated there, and Byron Banthorpe’s grandmother has been receiving treatment at the hospice.
