Second time round: Stephen Sackur

AN Ealing man and BBC television journalist is running the London Marathon for the second time.

Stephen Sackur is lacing up his running shoes to raise money for Just a Drop, which provide access to clean water in some of the world’s poorest and neglected communities.

In 2010, Stephen, a former foreign correspondent and presenter of BBC World’s flagship currents affairs programme, HARDtalk, first ran the marathon for the charity.

“Just a Drop’s strategy is beautifully simple – helping some of the world’s poorest and most neglected communities gain access to the most important resource of all, water,” Stephen said.

“The least I can do is help them to help so many others – that’s a thought which will spur me on.”
