Eddie (57) raised the cash for Breast Cancer Now earlier in the year by running the Manchester Marathon – his eighth big fundraising run in as many years.

The Bo’ness man has raised a whopping £30,000 for various charities over the last decade.

Eddie, who was running in memory of his sister-in-law Moira Kirkham and his friend’s mother Violet Davidson, thanked all his sponsors, especially Robert Grant, Anne K Laing, Diane Paterson, Stuart lapsley and Charlie Brown.
