Joseph set for swim marathon.

A WARWICKSHIRE schoolboy is taking on a marathon challenge to raise money for cancer charities.

Joseph Deavall, 10, will swim around 200 lengths to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Care and Myton Hospice after finding out his grandmother, Liz Fincham, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.

Joseph said: "When I found out that my nanny had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer I was very upset and so I wanted to help her and all of the other people that are suffering in the same way.

"I'll be swimming 5k because I love a challenge and I decided the best way to raise lots of money would be by doing something I enjoy."

Joseph has already raised over PS600, beating his original target of PS150.
