Five young brothers have run a combined marathon to raise more than £2,000 for the Black Lives Matter movement.

The Handley siblings - George, 16, Keane, 14, and 13-year-old Ryan, as well as younger brothers Charlton, nine, and two-year-old Robson - took on the challenge on Sunday, June 14.

They completed it in three hours and 55 minutes, running in two two-hour stints around the Henderson Sports and Social Club near their home in Harold Park.

Dad Paul said: “We’re very proud of our boys for taking positive action and standing up for such an important cause whilst also raising a fantastic amount of money for charity.

“We would also like to thank everyone who has supported the boys through donations and messages of encouragement.”
