A COLWYN Bay sixth form pupil is aiming to mark his 17th birthday to raise funds for a national cancer charity.

Morgan Kendall, a pupil at Rydal Penrhos, has registered for the Milton Keynes half marathon next May, which is the earliest he can compete such an event. He is running in aid of Cancer Research UK just over five years after his father Stuart was diagnosed with the disease. He said: “Donating will be a huge help to anyone suffering cancer and for anybody in the future also suffering. Every donation will make me rain harder”.
