JAMES Laver, 23, from Hale completed the Greater Manchester Marathon and has already raised almost £1500 for Diabetes UK.

He chose the charity after his mother’s best friend Sheila Heraghty Smith, who was 56, died unexpectedly from complications resulting from brittle diabetes.

Francesca Smith, daughter of Sheila, said: “We can never thank him enough. It was such a selfless act. My mum would be so proud.”
