Ricky Jeffrey
Dr Kaiser Munir

Dr Kaiser Munir, a GP at the Haddenham Medical Centre, who this year ran the marathon for the second time has raised £1,700 for Action on Hearing Loss (formerly the RNID).

He writes on his Just Giving page: "Action on Hearing Loss do amazing work to help people with deafness, tinnitus and hearing loss live the life they choose. As many of you will know, my eldest sister, Chanda, is profoundly deaf and I have witnessed the effects of deafness first-hand all my life. I have also seen the great work that this charity has done."

Meanwhile, Haddenham butcher, Ricky Jeffrey from The Egghouse Butchery, Church End, has not only run the London Marathon again this year but is also registered to run the Race to the Stones later this summer. This is a 100km ultra-marathon starting in Lewknor, Oxfordshire and finishing in Avebury in the north Wessex Downs.

Ricky has already raised £2,691 for the Brain and Spine Foundation which since 1998 has been offering specialised and expert support to sufferers and their families affected by neurological and spinal problems. He will continue to collect funds for this charity, in his shop and online here until after Race to the Stones.

Ricky explains his reason for running for the Brain and Spine Foundation: "In memory of our two boys, Jack and Freddie, whom Emily and I lost to spina bifida and hydrocephalus in 2006 and 2008. At the time there were very few places where we could turn to for help and support in understanding more about both conditions."
