Sporting Steven Fletcher, a partner at Nottingham-based Focus Consultants, has raised more than £2,500 for charity after taking part in the London Marathon.
Steven, who lives at Ravenshead, completed the 26 miles and 385 yards, in three hours 41 minutes.
It was the fourth marathon he’d undertaken in the last four years, having previously run the London, New York and Edinburgh marathons.
Steven, 43, ran in aid of Get Kids Going – a national charity that gives children and young people with disabilities the specialist support to participate in sport.
“My mother used to work at Fountaindale School in Mansfield which is a specialised school for disabled children, plus I am absolutely passionate about sport of any kind and I am lucky enough to have two fit and healthy children who have every opportunity to take part in sport, so for me it is important that others are given the same access to opportunities,” said Steven.
Among those who donated were Steven’s colleagues at Focus offices at Phoenix Business Park, Nottingham, Endeavour Park, Boston, Princess Road East, Leicester, Aubourn, Lincoln, and Holborn, London.
