Marathon runner Stewart Grainger has completed the EDF Energy half marathon in Birmingham earlier this year and has decided to donated the money he raised to his local greyhound rescue, the Hall Green branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust.

The Birmingham Mail reports: “Stewart Grainger, aged 31 and from Bearwood, completed the EDF Energy Birmingham Half Marathon, which was supported by the Birmingham Mail, in October.

He collected sponsorship for the Hall Green branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust. Stewart is now planning to run a full marathon and carry on helping the charity, which cares for and finds homes for greyhounds once their racing days are over.

The web developer decided to help the trust after getting his greyhound Fawn from them. He said: “The race was hard work but I really enjoyed myself.””
