BBC news presenter Ben Brown successfully completed his first half-marathon and raised more than £1,000 (including gift aid) for Tom’s Fund and CRY on Sunday, October 12.

Ben, a CRY patron, took part in the Royal Parks Foundation half-marathon and said: “I’m thrilled to have completed my very first half marathon for CRY and in memory of Tom Clabburn who tragically died seven years ago.

“Thanks to some very generous donations, I raised more than £1000 for CRY – and completed the race in a decent 1.49.21. The weather was fine, the route beautiful and the training with my running mate Rob really kicked in!”
