Trowbridge man runs marathon in pal's memory

TROWBRIDGE man Chris Brooking is taking on the London Marathon in memory of his friend Tom Fairfield.

Mr Brooking, 33, is raising money for Dorothy House Hospice Care, which cared for Mr Fairfield, who died aged 32 of a brain tumour in November 2012. So far Mr Brooking, who works for Pritchards Estate Agents, in Bath, has raised £500 and hopes to get to £1,000.

He said: “They were fantastic to Tom and it is my way of saying thank you to them. “I’m hoping to finish in around five hours.”
