Novichok survivor Nick Bailey is running a full Marathon in support of the Stars Appeal.

Nick is running today (Sunday 11th August 2019) alongside more than a dozen from the Critical Care Team of the District Hospital, that helped him and others in the wake of the March 2018 incident in the city.

He's raising money for the Radnor Ward fund at the hospital where he received life saving care.

Nick was poisoned by the novichok nerve agent whilst responding to the terrible attack on two Russians in Salisbury city centre.

He ended on the intensive care/high dependency unit at the Radnor Ward fighting for his life.
