Cllr Thomas is a veteran to the 26.2 mile challenge as he has completed 10 in London, five each in New Forest, Harrow and overseas and one in Kingston.

The Labour councillor for Kensal Green aims to raise £10,000 for the charity.

The address is: Brent Civic Centre, Engineers Way, Wembley, HA9 0FJ.

The London Marathon takes place on April 13.
