Fundraising News: The things they do

Front runner Glyn Marston, 42, from Walsall, was attempting to break the world record for distance running on a treadmill over seven days in the week before his London Marathon run - both in a bid to raise funds for The National Autistic Society. Marston was running every day last week between 9am and 9pm in the window of Lillywhites sports shop in Piccadilly Circus, and was due to finish on Saturday before running the 26-plus miles on Sunday. He said: "My son Liam, 13, who has autism, is my inspiration for this attempt, and I'm hoping that my shop window challenge will raise awareness and increase understanding of autism."
