A Lincoln resident ran and completed a marathon in Berlin in aid of a children’s charity.

Neil Green from Newhaven Drive completed the Berlin Marathon last weekend in a time of 5 hours and 17 minutes.

Neil, who works in E.ON’s marketing department, raised £135 for the company’s charity of the year, NSPCC.

He said: “Running a marathon is a great way to see a new place, and to raise money for good causes.

“I started running marathons when I lost my dad to cancer and over the last 11 years I’ve raised over £50,000 for charity.

“This run has also brought me one step closer to completing ‘The Big Five’ city marathons. I already had New York, Chicago and London under my belt, and now with Berlin completed, I only need to do the Boston Marathon to achieve my goal.”

Suzanne Doxey, Community Relations Manager at E.ON, said: “Neil is one of our most active fundraisers, so we were delighted when he decided to run for our charity of the year, NSPCC.”
