Ugandan Andrew Wanzonele has raised £180 for Hospice.

Mr Wanzonele, aged 27, has spent the last year on the island as part of a Scripture Union Ministries Trust mission.

He raised the money by completing the Parish Walk in June.

He was also raising money for medical treatment for his step-mother who is HIV positive in Uganda.

Mr Wanzonele is pictured presenting the cheque to Terri Cook of Hospice’s fundraising team.

He has been staying on the island with David and Christine Roberts, of Douglas.

They are both keen supporters of Hospice so he felt it only right to give some funds to the local charity.

He completed the 85-mile event in 41st place in a time of 19 hours, 15 minutes and 54 seconds. His training only involved four ‘small walks’ prior to the event.

Terri thanked Mr Wanzonele for his support of the local charity and congratulated on his endeavours for his step-mum.
