A charity in Clare is to benefit from a madcap marathon challenge.

Clare Seekers, a social club for the visually impaired, will receive all the funds raised by ex-paratooper Matt Finch from Haverhill, who will attempt to run seven marathons in seven days during the Christmas holidays.

Super fit Matt, 29, is attempting the challenge between December 21 and 28.

The personal trainer and former British Thai boxing champion hopes to raise £1,000 in aid of the charity.

Matt’s challenge came about after he took a friend, who is almost blind, out for the day and realised just how hard it is for him but also for his wife.
