A father and daughter duo have raised more than £3,000 for Marie Curie by taking part in the London Marathon.

Paul Moss, of Nateby, ran the marathon in four hours and 50 minutes, whilst Catherine, 24, completed the event in five hours and 33 minutes.

Paul, a financial director, said the inspiration behind the run was to raise money for the charity who cared for his father, Harry, who died aged 70 in 2000.

He said: “Marie Curie did a lot for my dad when he was unwell, he was also Catherine’s grandfather, so it meant a lot to both of us.”

Paul and Catherine had set a target of £3,000 to raise, but they smashed that, reaching the £3,300 mark.
