A KEEN Broadway runner will be taking to the streets of the capital in a bid to raise funds for a worthwile cause.

Warren Mantle is set to take on the London Marathon, for the second year running, next Sunday, April 13, as he aims to collect more than £1,500 for St John's Ambulance.

The 41-year-old has been limbering up ahead of the gruelling 26.2 mile challenge by running, cycling, swimming and walking around the Vale, throughout the recent wet weather, in the hope of beating last years' time.

He has also taken on the Tough Guy event and the Blackminster half marathon to prepare himself.

"I had wanted to do this race for many years but due to numerous reasons, last year was the first time I was given the opportunity," Warren said.

"The race was amazing and is one of the best things I have ever done. I've worked really hard in training over the last few weeks in the hope I can complete the distance within my target time.

"The St John Ambulance are a great charity to raise funds for. They provide safety at so many events whether at races, music events or any large gathering of people as well as training people in first aid in workplaces and in schools.

"Friends and family have all given support but more donations would be welcome."

Warren has so far raised about £1,000 of his £1,625 target, visit www.virginmoneygiving.com/warrenmantle to make a donation.
