Portsmouth University student Jack Woodward has raised thousands of pounds for the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign after running the London Marathon dressed as a pair of testicles

Jack chose the unusual attire in an effort to raise awareness of testicular cancer after his housemate Rob Harris died of the disease aged just 21.

As well as friends and family, many strangers who have read about his exploits have donated to the cause.

On Jack’s Just Giving page, fellow marathon runner Becki wrote: “Was running alongside you at the marathon yesterday! Massive respect for finishing in that outfit.”

And Colleen added: “Saw the article about you on BuzzFeed - great cause, great costume and a great sense of humour! Hope you meet your target soon.”

Jack, who currently attends Portsmouth University, has raised £3,585 already and hopes to hit the £5,000 mark.
