Bluebird Richard Lewis raised £160.50 from his marathon run in Berlin in aid of the Fred Keenor Statue Fund.

Richard, 33, who ran in the German capital in September, also collected £204.50 for Sir Bobby Robson’s cancer charity.

An employee of the Welsh Assembly Government, Richard completed the run in 4 hours 56 minutes, 12 seconds.
