Fundraising: The things they do - Seven-marathon men

Three long-distance runners from north Wales ran 185 miles in seven days to raise money to buy a total care bed for their local cancer centre. Twins Richard and Tom Watson and their friend Gareth Matthews, all from Colwyn Bay, ran the length of Offa's Dyke on the England-Wales border, which was the equivalent of a marathon a day for a week. The trio hope to have raised the £10,000 required to buy the special bed. "We really appreciate the effort the lads put in," said Ray Pritchard, fundraising manager at the Conwy & Denbighshire NHS Trust. "It's a great example of the diverse ways people choose to raise money for us."
