A man has been inspired to raise funds for a children’s hospsice after watching his friend run the London Marathon.

Mark Ager hopes to raise £1,000 for Beckton’s Richard House by hosting a quiz night at a Custom House pub next month.

And it was the 46-year old sales manager’s friend Emma who inspired him.

“Emma ran the London Marathon for Richard House and I got to hear more about their work,” Mark explained.

“Her experience inspired me to become more involved in the community.

“I visited Richard House years ago and I know they do some damned hard work there. It would be nice to raise money to look after the children.”

The quiz night will take place at the Custom House Pub in Victoria Dock Road on June 2 from 7.30pm.
