Greg Standing, partner in the Dispute Resolution Group at law firm Wragge & Co, is running the London Marathon next month to raise money for Sense, the charity for deafblind people.

Standing, also a regular contributor to Motor Finance, said he was running the 26.2-mile course, and one of the most popular marathons in the world, for two reasons.

First, to raise money for those less fortunate than most and secondly, to "chalk the marathon off the ‘to do’ list".

Donations can be made on Standing’s Just Giving page.
