A Midlothian man raised more than £1,000 for a diabetes charity at the 2013 Edinburgh Marathon.

Norrie Philp (39), of Wisp Green, Danderhall, was diagnosed with the disease seven years ago. 
Indebted to nurses at the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary who have helped him over the years, he completed a half marathon to raise cash for Diabetes UK.

His finish time was 2hr 10m. He said: “My target was two hours and so I’m pleased. It feels nice to have done something for other people.”
