Cllr Cronnelly said: "I'm a few weeks away from my marathon challenge on March 2 for WsM Foodbank.

"If you're a sports clubs, school, gym or business and want to help me get fit, set me a challenge or take me through my paces then do get in touch with my office -

"You might have a training session I can attend, or perhaps you've got loads of stairs to run up or your team are doing a sporty fundraising challenge - do get in touch and we can showcase your work, help me get ready but also help raise money for WsM Foodbank."
