Haverhill’s Matt Fitch who is currently running seven marathons in seven days over Christmas has received a message of encouragement from his hero, explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes.

Sir Ran said: “Matt, I heard about your fantastic challenge giving up your Christmas to run seven marathons in seven days for Clare Seekers, a social club for the visually impaired in Suffolk. “There may be no tropical heat or jet lag to contend with in Haverhill, as Mike Stroud and I found on our seven continents adventure, but it is still a mighty challenge for you and I wish you all the very best.”
