PINK fairies will be taking part in a marathon to raise money for a cancer charity.

First-time marathon runners Robert Locke and his son, Jonathan, from Fareham, have pledged to run the London marathon for CLIC Sargent dressed as pink fairies.

Robert is a solicitor who specialises in motoring law and spends most of his time in court, and Jonathan is a company director who specialises in collecting, organising and storing books and records for insolvency practitioners and dealing with disposal of assets for creditors.

They were inspired to take on the challenge after hearing about the work that CLIC Sargent does supporting children and young people with cancer.

Robert said: ‘Training is going really well. My son, Jonathan, has vowed to get me across the finishing line on the day and I have every faith that we will complete the course, especially when we are running for such a great cause.’

They have set themselves a combined target of £1,800.
