Lewes Golf Club pro Tony Hilton raised just over £4,000 by running the marathon in 3 hours 52 minutes and 25 seconds, just under his goal of four hours.

The money has paid for a recumbent bike for stroke patient David Hills from Nutley, who is pictured with Tony.

David has had the bike since late March. He is already showing an improvement in the strength and range of movement in his left arm and his walking is better.
