BARNSLEY runners have raised more than £8,000 for charity after collecting donations and running a marathon.

David Crossley, 36, and Joanne Moorwood, 39, raised the money for MacMillan Cancer Research and were given help training at the local Bannatyne's gym.

David said: “I decided to run the marathon for MacMillan Cancer Research as I have had a few friends and family members who have battled cancer. It’s a great cause which will really spur me on.”
