It is part of Trevor's preparation for the London Marathon this weekend."With a lead time like this," he said, "I should be near enough able to complete the Marathon next week in about four hours. "The conditions improved as the race progressed and the new course is a little easier," he added.At the London Marathon, Cllr Cope will be raising money for Merlin - the only specialist UK charity which responds worldwide with vital health care and medical relief for vulnerable people caught up in natural disasters, conflict, and disease and when health systems collapse.He said: "I am still open for anyone who would like to make a donation to Merlin for the race and thank the pupils and staff of Sidmouth College, Exmouth Community College and the councillors of East Devon and Exmouth Town Council for their support so far."If you want to help, please email trevor.cope@talk21.com
