Varley receives 'unbelievable' backing from Kamara

Local athlete is attempting 19 marathons in 19 days

Christian Varley has received a message of support from popular Sky Sports football analyst Chris Kamara.

The local athlete is around two-thirds of the way through his attempt to run 19 marathons on 19 consecutive days - today is day 13.

Christian has smashed his fundraising target of £19,000 already: the total had hit £25,000 and was then boosted massively earlier today by a £19,000 donation from a local gaming company.
