Emergency planning officer Russ Parramore, from Chapeltown, will be running the London Marathon in support of his friends’ grandchild, Benjamin Robinson, who was diagnosed with Leukaemia at three years old.

He will be donating all his sponsorship money to CLIC Sargent – a charity that supports children, young people and their families from the point of diagnosis onwards.

Since his diagnosis, Benjamin, aged four, has been receiving treatment at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital
