Hundreds of people have made donations to the fundraising page of a young Londoner who died after collapsing during a marathon.
Sam Harper Brighouse is believed to have suffered a cardiac arrest at about the 16-mile mark of the Brighton Marathon yesterday.
Donations have since been flooding in to his justgiving.com page - with the total now well above £5,000. He'd originally aimed to raise just £500.
His site states that he had embarked on the challenge to raise money for the Arms Around The Child charity which supports Aids orphans.
He wrote: "I'm running, jogging, crawling the brighton marathon for Arms Around The Child (UK) (formerly KCA UK) because I am want to raise money for a good cause."
