A son who lost his mother to cancer has completed six marathons in six days and raised more than £36,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support in her memory.

Tom Hacker, of Horbury, finished his six day coast-to-coast challenge on Saturday.

He started his 165 mile journey from Liverpool on Monday and finished at Spurn Point on the East Coast.

Mr Hacker, 26, lost his mum Susan to cancer 13 years ago and has previously raised £30,000 for cancer charities.

Mr Hacker said on his Facebook page: “I have given this everything I had. I crossed the line surrounded by my friends and family after 165 miles of running.

“No matter how hard the challenge, if you believe in what you are doing and give it your all, it’s worth it. Thank you to everyone that has played a part in my event. Big or small.”

Mr Hacker’s family and friends are now putting him forward for a Pride of Britain award.
