AN Altrincham ward councillor will run the London Marathon in support of the charity, Mind, this Sunday.

Cllr Alex Williams has completed the last two Greater Manchester marathons, but has this year set his sights on the UK's most famous marathon course.

“It should be a very memorable day and I'm looking forward to joining over 30,000 other runners on Sunday,” said the former council deputy leader.

“I'm also delighted to be supporting Mind.

“Each year one in four people in the UK will experience a mental health problem.

“Over more than 65 years, Mind has worked to ensure that those who need help can access the support they require and are treated with the respect they deserve."
