Tim said: "I am in awe of the amazing work that St John's Hospice do, especially during this crisis, in giving vital care to patients and their families.

"I'm proud to be running for St John's Hospice and would be enormously grateful for any donations you can give to support them.

"There will be so many people taking part next Saturday to raise money for such worthy causes and charities, so I'm delighted that the event is able to go ahead."
