Marathon men Dave Newman and Richard Wells have handed over a cheque for £11,835.65 to Brain Tumour Research.

The Billingborough Cricket Club duo raised the mammoth sum by batting for 48 hours continuously in an indoor net last month – a feat that earned them a Guinness World Record.

Newman and Wells, who initially wanted to raise £10,000, expect the final total to be more like £12,200 before their fund-raising efforts come to an end.
