Mark piles on the miles

Well done to Ex-Round Tabler Mark Durrant who ran the Chichester Priory10km for Ark Cancer Centre Charity on Sunday.

Mark decided to support the Charity after hearing a talk by Mark Jones, Ark Cancer Centre Charity Director of Fundraising and Communications, about the Charity's £5million fundraising appeal to help build a unique local cancer treatment centre in the Basingstoke area.

On Sunday, Mark clocked 54:45 for the 10km event - a minute faster than his previous time - and he has raised £175 so far.
