A former soldier turned long-serving fundraiser has made his way through West Norfolk during a 260 mile running challenge.

Phil Bartlett, from County Durham, ran from Wereham to Terrington St Clement on Friday, despite battling a shin injury, on the fifth leg of his Garrison Gallop from Colchester to Catterick.

The challenge, which he hopes to complete over 18 days - finishing in North Yorkshire on his 60th birthday next month, is in aid of Help For Heroes.

The next leg of the challenge is scheduled to see him run from Terrington St Clement to Holbeach tomorrow.

Phil, who served in the Army for 17 years, has already raised more than £80,000 for the cause over the past eight years and hopes to top £100,000 during the run. Anyone who would like to donate should visit www.justgiving.com/fundraising/garrisongallop.
