Runner's charity touched by 'incredible generosity'

A charity has said it is touched by the "incredible generosity" shown by the public after donations to the fundraising page of a London Marathon runner who died after completing the race soared.

Donations on Rob Berry's JustGiving page have increased to more than £62,000.

A spokesman for the National Osteoporosis Society charity said:

We are really touched by the incredible generosity in tribute to Mr Berry, who wrote so movingly about why he was raising money to help fight osteoporosis.

When the time is right, we would like to discuss with his family the options available for how the funds raised in his memory may be used.
