THIS is a call to anyone from North Yorkshire and the North-East who might be interested in running the Berlin Marathon on September 26.

Healthcare charity Sue Ryder Care has eight places available, which will be subject to a £25 registration fee, but an open sponsorship target.

All sponsorship raised will help us continue vital health and social care for people with life-limiting and long-term conditions. Each year we provide four million hours of care and we need to raise £74m to fund our work.

The deadline for signing up for the marathon is August 20. Those interested can call 01904-426920 or email lucy.nalton@sueryder Lucy Nalton, Yorkshire Fundraiser, Sue Ryder Care, York.
