UKIP MEP James Carver, who has completed a number of runs for various good causes, including the 2012 London Marathon, will be taking part in the Great Birmingham Run in aid of the Black Country-based charity The Beacon Centre for the Blind. Tens of thousands of runners are to compete in the annual event which descends on Birmingham this Sunday.
Mr Carver, said: “I am very much looking forward to taking part in the Great Birmingham Run which I am doing in aid of the fantastic local charity The Beacon Centre for the Blind. The work of this charity raises awareness of sight loss, causes and how some of the serious eye conditions can be treated, or even prevented, if they are caught early enough.”
