Tree officer to run Flora London Marathon in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support

A tree officer from Wokingham will run his first marathon at the weekend in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Wokingham Borough Council's senior tree officer Jon Matthews is to run the Flora London Marathon on Sunday (26 April).

"I chose to run for Macmillan Cancer Support because my father was diagnosed with a terminal illness in 2007 and I haven't forgotten the care and support given to him and the family by the charity," he explained.

As part of his training, Jon Matthews has completed the Fleet and Reading half marathons.

To support him email or call 07757 861372.
