Cllr James Denselow completed the New Forest Marathon yesterday in just three hours and 45 minutes in support of the Mayhew Animal Home in Trenmar Gardens.

He said: “I’m really happy to have completed my seventh marathon for the wonderful Mayhew Animal Home.

“It was a beautiful run in the New Forest and despite the temperature being a little hotter than expected I managed to get through the 26 miles ok.

“I’d like to thank all those who sponsored and supported me.”

It is the second time the Labour councillor for Queen’s Park has run for the rescue centre, one of the busiest animal welfare organisations in the capital which helps thousands of cats, dogs and other animals escape cruelty and abandonment.

In 2013 he laced his boots for the charity and pounded the 26-mile course in Bournemouth.
