A YMCA worker is running three marathons in eight months to raise money for the charity.

Jonathan Buckley will run in the Chesterfield Half-Marathon on September 24, the Sleaford half-marathon in February and London Marathon in April.

Jonathan began running when on a gap year in Thailand in 2007.

He is trying to raise £2,000 to support young people across Sheffield, Rotherham and Wakefield.

The charity runs after-school clubs and youth clubs and helps children with disabilities.

Jonathan said: “All the money raised will go towards the vital work that we at the YMCA undertake.”
