Three teachers are preparing to run the Brighton Marathon to raise money to support a teenager who suffers from a rare form of cancer.

Steph Campbell, 28, James Mannion, 34, and Sarah Rhys, 41, from Portslade Community College in Chalky Road, Portslade, will be raising money to support 17-year-old Beth Ansell.

Beth was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, Ewing's Sarcoma, last summer.

Money raised will go to the Teenage Cancer Trust (TCT), which is raising money specifically to build and develop a teenage cancer ward at the Royal Marsden Hospital where Beth is currently being treated.

Beth, who is still undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy and awaiting an operation, said: “I think it's great the teachers are doing the marathon as the TCT needs as much money as it can get.”
