A DEDICATED charity fundraiser is set to run the Flora London Marathon later this month to help yet another charity of his choice.

Ian Webber, who lives near Coldridge, intends to run the 26-mile route on Sunday April 26 in aid of the Okehampton and Exeter branches of the St John Ambulance.

Ian chose the charity because of its background of supporting many local community events —it will be his eighth London Marathon.

Over the years, Ian, who works with the homeless in Exeter, has raised more than £27,500 for various charities through sponsorship of his marathon runs and he hopes his efforts this year will help him make £30,000.

He said: 'Running the marathon is something I enjoy doing and it is for a worthwhile cause.

'I hope to raise as much money as I can for the Okehampton and Exeter branches.'
