Matt Ladkin is running the London Marathon to raise funds for CRY in memory of his brother, Tom.

A LOVING brother will be raising money for Cardiac Risk in the Young in a bid to save young lives following the sudden death of his beloved sibling, aged just 20.

Thomas Petley, from Ramsey, died suddenly in his sleep on April 21 last year.

His brother Matt Ladkin, a former PCSO in Clacton who is now head of community at Tendring-based CGN Restaurants, will be running the London Marathon in aid of the Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) charity in memory of Thomas.

“If we can detect just one person and get them the help they need, then it’s all worth it.”
