ONE OF THE directors of Polegate-based charity The Children with Cancer Fund raised £1,300 after he ran all the way around the Brighton Marathon. The money will be used to take families who have a child suffering from cancer to Knockhatch Adventure Park. Chris Downton gave a ‘big thanks’ to all his supporters.

He said: “I did it in 6.46 hrs, with jogging and a lot of walking. I had a bad back and knee that was killing me. There was 25.5 miles of it but I am happy to have done it.”
