Darryl & Carol from the Llanelli Branch visited Tenby recently to accept a cheque for £500 raised in memory of local man Geoffrey Brace who sadly passed away after battling leukaemia. The Llanelli branch went along to meet with his wife Mary who also presented cheques to the local Hospital and another charity. Thank you to the Brace family and friends for their kind support.

This year we had 12 people taking part with some new faces joining the team including Gwilym Lee from Midsomer Murders and Samuel Roukin, who flew in especially from New York to support us.  As always, Emmerdale’s Tony Audenshaw, who was running in his 14th London Marathon, brought a smile not only to our faces but also to the BBC’s Jonathan Edwards, who interviewed him after the race, as this year he chose to accessorise his running outfit with a rather eye catching plastic bottom yet still...
