VETERAN marathon man Clive Daniels hopes to add a further £11,000 to his fund raising kitty after coming out of retirement to run another 13 miles for charity.

As previously reported in Yate and Sodbury Voice, Clive had hung up his running shoes, only to dust them off for the recent Bristol Half Marathon.

The Yate 71-year-old had changed his mind in the summer when he was the recipient of the British Citizen Award at the House of Lords - an accolade that recognises exceptional endeavour by people in the fields of business, healthcare, the arts, education and in their community.. 

He said the exploits of the other 30 award winners inspired him to return to running to continue helping Macmillan Cancer Support.

At the half marathon, Clive completed the course in two hours and 27 minutes.

He has now clocked up 33 years of running for charity and to date he has raised £252,000, the majority of which has been for Macmillan in the last 20 years. 

Clive thanked all his sponsors for their support. His online charity page is still open at
