A Belfast couple, whose wedding was postponed due to Covid-19, are fundraising for vital medication to ensure one very special friend can be a part of their special day post-lockdown.

On Saturday, Tim Atkinson completed a marathon in four hours and 25 minutes for his friend and future bridesmaid, Sarah Gardner.

Sarah (34) has had a very long and complicated journey so far, which has seen her diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in 2018.
