Mr Tugman, who was diagnosed with bladder cancer in May this year, will be running with Greenfingers director of marketing and fundraising Deborah Skillicorn.

He said: "My treatment has been going well and I have now been able to continue with my training for the event, which I started before I became ill but had to give up when I was diagnosed with cancer. I am really looking forward to taking part in the run. I am hoping to raise £1,500 for Greenfingers."

The charity was launched in November 1998 and has created 30 magical gardens at children's hospices across the UK, with more planned for 2010.
