The publisher of Yate and Sodbury Voice is running a half marathon to raise funds for two cancer charities.

Richard Drew, 49, is set to run the Great Birmingham race in October, along with his brother Mark, in aid of Marie Curie and Macmillan Cancer Care.  The two organisations gave care to their father Alan and his family when he was terminally ill with cancer.

The brothers decided to run in October, which marks the 20th anniversary of their father’s death.  Richard said; “We thought that twenty years on it would be a good idea to try and raise a bit of money for the organisations that are still doing such sterling work, helping other families that are facing what we had to”.
