Macmillan needs marathon effort

MACMILLAN Cancer Support is encouraging local people to work off the festive weight with one of their guaranteed places in the Brighton Marathon this year.

The cancer charity has a limited number of places available for those wanting to get fit and raise money to help people affected by cancer in the local area.

Macmillan is currently raising money to build a cancer information and support centre in Brighton for people affected by cancer across Sussex and needs to raise £3.7million.

If you would like a place in the marathon on Sunday, April 10 or would like to use your own place in the race to raise money for the Sussex appeal, call 01273 746601 or email
