A physiotherapist has completed two marathons to raise money to buy equipment for patients who are battling head and neck cancer.

Catherine Slater who works in critical care at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, ran the Snowdonia marathon and also completed the Isle of Man mountain marathon, which involves running 33 miles over eight mountains.

She raised £350 which paid for new communication boards to help head and neck cancer patients to communicate following treatment.
