AN Local RAF serviceman from RAF Cranwell is hoping to raise £4000 for charity by running in the London Marathon this year.
Flt Lt Paul Harrap aims to raise the cash to help children affected by the UK's most common form of childhood cancer, leukaemia.
He has spent months preparing for the big day and hopes he can make a difference by completing the gruelling 26.2 miles on April 25. Flt Lt Harrap, 36, is running about 60 miles a week to help build himself up for the marathon.
Paul is also hosting an online auction to raise cash for his cause.
