Runners (and no, doubt, walkers) from across the Vale have completed the London Marathon, raising thousands of money for charity in the process.

Among them was Daniel Shaw, 28, from Aylesbury, who completed the race in aid of SeeAbility, finishing in 5:02.45 and raising more than £1,500.

Daniel, who suffers from nystagmus, a condition which causes uncontrolled movement of the eye, is a member of Bucks Fire and Rescue Service’s IT team.

He is both short and long sighted and originally took up running in an effort to lose weight.

Robert Graham from Stone, Marisha Stimpson from Waddesdon and David Osborne from Stony Stratford raised much-needed funds for the Florence Nightingale hospice, based in Aylesbury, as they competed in the 35th annual marathon around the capital.

Rob, who crossed the finish line in three hours, 14 minutes and six seconds, said he was “delighted” with his time.

Marisha, finished in four hours, 18 minutes, 55 seconds, with David coming in after five hours, 35 minutes and 37 seconds.

Early indications show the runners have raised more than £3,500 for the hospice with more sponsorship to come in.
