Tom Swanbury, cousin of the late Robert Powell, raised £3,366 in aid of OPEN Youth Trust, a charity Mr Powell worked closely with as a photographer.

Mr Swanbury, 37, completed his first London marathon in 4hrs 11min.

Mr Powell's father Malcolm Powell has also teamed up with OPEN Youth Trust to set up a JustGiving page in his son's memory to support Norfolk's aspiring young photographers.

Between Mr Swanbury and Malcolm Powell, over £6,000 has been raised for OPEN which will be used to pay for free workshops for aspiring photographers between the ages of nine and 19.
