Mr Charles Docker, Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Spire South Bank Bone and Joint Clinic, recently ran the Birmingham Half Marathon in aid of Acorns Children's Hospices.
Mr Docker said "I'm running 13.1 miles for Acorns Children's Hospice Trust because of the great work they do for severly ill children.
"The support for my fundraising efforts from the staff at Spire South Bank Hospital really helped me as I pounded the streets of Birmingham - particularly through the last 3 miles uphill!"
Donations can still be made at Mr Docker's fundraising web page: www.justgiving.com/Charlie-Docker1
Funds go directly to Acorns to support their work with children suffering from life limiting conditions.
