At a recent Half Marathon held at Silverstone Raceway Kettering man Wayne Tideswell ran for ‘PROSTaid’.
Although the morning started cold and foggy the weather cleared by midday and the sun was shining for
the start of the race.
‘PROSTaid’ is a locally based Charity that raises money every year to cover the cost of a
Prostate Cancer Pallative Nurse who works with terminally ill Prostate Cancer patients only in Northamptonshire.
Wayne, aged 45, and is an Accounts Manager for the Halifax Building Society at Corby, was really pleased with his time
of 1 hour 49 minutes as it was well below his target of 2 hours that he has been training really hard for.
Wayne, on the right of the picture, is seen handing the cheque for £450 to local man Bip Wetherell
who is currently in remission from Prostate Cancer.
Bip is one of the fundraisers on the PROSTaid Committee who helps raise the £50K needed every year.
Both Bip and Wayne are keen tennis players and have played for Northampton at county level.
Wayne is also a qualified Tennis Coach and uses his spare time to give Tennis lessons.
