Fired up

Park Row Independent Mortgages managing director Kevin Paterson has raised £400 for Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service by completing in the Great South Run.

Kevin runs the 10-mile race from Portsmouth every year but this year decided to raise money for the fire service benevolent fund following a serious house fire at his home last summer.

During the heatwave last August, a fan overheated in his son&#39s bedroom, causing a fire. The family moved into temporary accommodation for 11 weeks while the damage to their home was repaired.

Kevin presented his cheque to fireman Jason Avery who led the watch on the night of the fire.
