A group of runners are gearing up to run the Virgin London Marathon for a care home.

Charlton Vincent, 45, Gordon Vincent, 50, Holly Finnigan, 27, Michael Wilkins, 33, and Vincent Thibon, 43, have stepped up to the 26.2 mile challenge to raise much-needed funds for Symonds House in Hitchin.

The home, run by charity Leonard Cheshire Disability, supports 20 disabled people and enables them to enjoy their lives to the full.

The money raised will go towards a new piece of physiotherapy equipment.

Aileen Baker, service manager at Symonds House, said: “We are delighted to have such a dedicated team of runners taking part to raise funds for Symonds House. We are still seeking sponsorship for the team and encourage anyone interested to visit our website or contact us directly on 01462 452460.”
