Fire­fighter on the road

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Ducking And Diving -

A fire­man from Wye will be run­ning in his fifth Lon­don Marathon - and will tackle it in his fire brigade gear.

Daniel Capon says he will be run­ning on home ter­ri­tory, as he has been part of the Lon­don Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice for the past 16 years.

The 41-year-old now a watch man­ager at Lewisham fire sta­tion, and is rais­ing funds for the Make a Wish Foun­da­tion.

The char­ity sup­ports chil­dren with life-threat­en­ing ill­nesses. Grant­ing them mag­i­cal wishes to cre­ate mem­o­ries for the chil­dren and their fam­i­lies to trea­sure.

Mr Capon added: “Run­ning the Lon­don Marathon is a great achieve­ment, how­ever this is only a small chal­lenge when you com­pare it to the chal­lenges some chil­dren have to over­come when liv­ing with life-threat­en­ing ill­ness.”
