A 38-YEAR-OLD from Weston is training for his ninth London Marathon.

Steve Thomas, of Ashcombe Road, is training for the 2012 event, and is urging runners who have secured a place in the race to join him in supporting the NSPCC’s ChildLine service.

Steve, who works as a site director for Roadchef Ltd on the M5 Sedgemoor services, said: “As a single father who has two little children at home with me, the NSPCC is the obvious choice.

“I will be really pleased if I finish under five hours as I started the training a little late.”

Money raised for the NSPCC through this year’s marathon will support the charity’s ChildLine service. ChildLine is the UK’s free, 24-hour helpline for children in danger or distress.

The company Steve works for nominated the charity as its charity of the year for 2012.
