A student from Billingshurst is part of a team of six who are all set to run more than 100 miles to raise money for St John Ambulance.

Jack Warren, 20, attended The Weald Community School and Sixth Form and is currently studying Biological Sciences. He said: “I’m hoping to study Graduate Entry Medicine after uni. I have been a volunteer first aider for St John Ambulance for almost a year now. I decided to do Bath Half to raise money for a great charity and spread awareness of the important work they do.”
