Travis man takes on London Marathon
Published:  15 April, 2011

GRIMSBY: Martin Howram, 47, who works for Travis Perkins, is taking on the London Marathon again to raise money for a local charity.

Mr Howram, who will run to raise money for When You Wish Upon A Star, has worked for the building material suppliers for 23 years and confesses his colleagues think he is crackers for taking part.

"After running marathons in 2007 and 2008, I just got hooked," he said. He is supporting Grimsby-based When You Wish Upon A Star, a charity that ‘helps make the dreams of terminally ill children come true’.
