Andy in coast path run for hospice
A PRAZE-AN-BEEBLE man has set himself the challenge of running the entire Cornish coast path over ten days to raise money for charity.
Andy Jukes has been joined daily by official starters, including several Cornish MPs, since he set off on the run on Friday, September 20.
The 46-year-old is raising money for Children's Hospice South West (CHSW) and has already seen donations of £2,400 pour in.
Andy said: "The aim has always been for this to be a collaborative run where others can take part and together they can raise money for CHSW and show the strength of the Cornish community."

George Eustice, MP for Camborne, Redruth and Hayle, will start this weekend.
The final starter will be Colin Nicholls, Mayor of St Ives, who will kick off the last day of running at Carbis Bay on Sunday, September 29.
As well as MPs and dignatories, people from local schools, running clubs, some of the Cornish Pirates, and Andy's daughter and son, have also been keeping him company on the path throughout the week.
Family friend Jayne Angilly decided to run the entire coast path alongside Andy, which he said is a huge support.
He added that having someone different start the race each day has kept the challenge fresh.
