HOPING to raise £1,000 for Mountain Rescue England and Wales is Kinder MRT member Adrian Taylor.

He has won a place in the London marathon, and is busy training in the Goyt Valley, Lyme Park and Kinder areas.

“This will be my first marathon and so I won’t be looking to set any records by any means, finishing in one piece is the main aim.

“To make matters more difficult I will be running in my walking boots, wearing my climbing helmet and carrying a rather large back pack!”

Mountain Rescue Teams rely entirely on public donations to provide the funding to keep teams running. To support Adrian’s efforts, go to www.justgiving.com/aditaylor-mountainrescue .
