A MUSICIAN is running his first marathon to raise money for a hospice.

Graham Corbould, 51, from Bexleyheath, is taking part in the London Marathon on April 13 to raise money for Greenwich and Bexley Cottage Hospice.

The songwriter and guitar teacher said his main priority is not to come last.

He said: "It is the taking part, not the winning. The objective is to finish. I just don't want to come last.

"I chose this charity because it does great work once the NHS has given up on patients. The work they do is far more personal than the NHS is able or prepared to give."

The father-of-two said he is not getting as much training as he should. He said: "On average, I have been running 14 to 15 miles a week, since January."

To help him raise his target of £1,500, he is hosting a music evening. Graham's Big Marathon Ball is on at Sidcup Rugby Club on Saturday. Tickets cost £6.
