Former police officer Steve Morgan and post office manager Nick Wiles have launched a new charity event in Midhurst which they hope will grow into a national fundraiser for Macmillan Cancer Support.

They kicked off Macmillathon with a triathlon and the support of actor Lawrence Fox, star of the popular televison series Lewis, who lives with his wife BIlly Piper in Easebourne.

Lawrence was on hand to offer encouragement at the Spread Eagle Hotel in Midhurst when Steve and Nick undertook a challenging 10km run, 10km cycle and 5km row.

They completed their gruelling fundraiser in the Aquilla Spa at the hotel where spa manager Toni Lowe supported them on the cross-trainer throughout the whole two-hour challenge.
