Burnham-On-Sea runner raises £1,800 for charity at London Marathon

Burnham-On-Sea runner Richard Thomas has raised over £1,800 for charity by completing last week's London Marathon.

Richard completed the course in four hours, forty seven minutes and ten seconds and sponsorship for his nominated charity, Highbridge-based National Blind Childrens’ Society, has so far reached £1,882.00, which is far more than his original target of £1,350.

Richard told "It was an amazing day and everyone who has been kind enough to donate really pushed me over the line."

"It was surprisingly warm so that took its toll, but the amount of people lining the streets cheering you on raises your spirits."

"I could probably sleep for a week and I think it will take a while for my body to recover, however it was definitely worth it."

Richard is still welcoming donations online here.
