SCARBOROUGH marathon man Liam Hewitt proved he was made of stern stuff after completing a gruelling 65-mile charity run.
Mr Hewitt, who is currently serving in the Falklands Islands with the Royal Air Force, took part in the ultra marathon for St Catherine’s Hospice.
He was joined by colleagues Rikki Swallow and Anthony Berney and was inspired to take on the arduous challenge in memory of his grandmother, who died in the hospice in 2001.
He said: “I am hoping to raise as much money as possible in sponsorship, in memory of my grandmother and in appreciation of the care she received at Saint Catherine’s Hospice.”
Louise Gravestock, hospice fundraiser, added: “We are very grateful to Liam, Rikki and Anthony for their wonderful support.
“It is fabulous that they have been flying the flag for St Catherine’s at the other side of the world and the money they raise will help us continue caring for patients and families.”
