Three west Norfolk businessmen have raised £25,000 for a cancer charity after completing the London Marathon.

Martyn Benstead, Neil Gayton and Steve Eke ran the 26-mile course in the hottest conditions on record, all finishing in around five hours.

They were running in aid of Prostate Cancer UK.

Mr Benstead, a partner at accountants Stephenson Smart’s Fakenham office, said the heat had a major impact on the trio, who battled with injuries and cramp.

“But we are extremely proud of our achievements. The pain was definitely worth it to raise such a substantial amount of money for an amazing cause,” he said.

A large donation came from Stephenson Smart, where Mr Gayton also works as a manager at the King’s Lynn office.

Mr Eke is general manager of TYM International and thanked customers for their sponsorship.
