Wimbledon's marathon man

Sponsor Ziggy and raise funds for the Dons Trust

Wimbledon supporter Ziggy Heath was inspired by the Crazy Gang as a child and now he’s hoping that same never-say-die spirit will help him succeed in next Sunday’s London Marathon.

Ziggy, who is an actor, has spent his spare time away from the studios clocking up the miles in preparation for an event in which he will represent his beloved AFC Wimbledon.

After applying unsuccessfully to get into a race that is over-subscribed every year, Ziggy was delighted to get an opportunity after answering our advert on the official website.

Ziggy will be raising funds for the Dons Trust and supporters can now donate £10, £20 or £50, which includes the booking fee.

He said: “When I saw the advert on the website I thought it was a great opportunity. My training has gone really well and I was doing 50 miles a week during my peak in March. I have now eased down a bit with only a week to go.

“Vinnie Jones was a hero of mine and I have followed AFC Wimbledon avidly since we started. The first AFC Wimbledon game I went to was away at Guildford and Godalming. If I had the choice I would bring Matt Everard out of retirement and give him a defensive ‘string-puller’ role!”

Since leaving university last year, Ziggy has starred in BBC Four’s Spies of Warsaw and has been filming for BBC One’s What Remains, which is due to be aired in September.
