UK news: Will on the run

Our awesome friend Will Gordon crossed the finishing line of the Great North Run on Sunday having banked £815 in sponsorship for Happy House.
Will never makes fundraising easy for himself, he sets himself a challenge and then goes for it.
Last year he attempted two half-marathons for Happy House, his "lifelong charity",  and having managed the Leeds Half-Marathon, he hobbled over the finishing line in the great North Run.
But never a man to be beaten Will, who lives just outside Leeds, was back for more this weekend.
Running on a sunny day, with no shade, took its toll and slowed Will down to finish in a two hours 14minutes - not as fast as he would have liked.
But his fundraising leapt way of his £250 targer, with his family and friends donating a wonderful £815.
Will said: Thank you or the sponsorship... it really does help some of the poorest kids in Kenya who haven't had the best start in life.
Our thanks to Will and to all those who backed this Happy House winner, for a brilliant effort and for always going the extra mile.
Happy House loves you!
