A Portishead man hoping to support the environment will run the London Marathon on Sunday, with hopes of raising thousands of pounds.
Simon Nolan will tackle the 26.2-mile race for charity Tree Aid to support its efforts to plant greenery across Africa.
The former Gordano School pupil, who runs a landscaping business, has already raised close to £2,000 – and he hopes more donations will flood in over the coming days.
The cash raised will be used to fund a tree-planting project in Mali.
A Tree Aid spokesman said: “Simon is passionate about the environment and wants to be part of the efforts to re-green Africa.
“He's done an amazing job so far with his fundraising, mainly through family and friends, and some of his customers have also been very generous.”
