Cotmanhay man Mark Webber has raised thousands of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support by taking part in the Great North Run every year for more than a decade.

Mark has raised £900 for the charity in 2013 and 2014 alone. This September will be his fourteenth year of taking part to raise money for the cause.

Gini Smith, fundraising manager for Derbyshire, said: “It’s thanks to people like Mark, who support us year in year out, that we are able to provide services and support to people affected by cancer. We couldn’t do it without them.”

Macmillan’s aim is to reach and improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer.
