A SOLDIER'S son is to run the London Marathon to raise money for a veterans' charity.
Glenn Brawn, a sales director from Bickley, is hoping to raise £1,500 for The Royal British Legion as family have a history of joining the Royal Artillery.
The hopeful runner wants raise money for the legion's Poppy Support welfare services.
Mr Brawn said: "My father recently retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the Royal Artillery after having joined the Army as a gunner at the age of 15.
"My grandfather was also in the Artillery and is a World War II Veteran.
"I'm lucky that my family and friends are very supportive and think it is for a great cause.
"My mum runs loads and is running the Paris marathon the week before I do London so she's great inspiration!"
The Royal Legion protects the interest of around 10.5 million British services and ex-service people and their dependents.
