Scott prepares for fundraising half-marathon
A fundraiser who lost his kidney to cancer in 2010 is preparing to take part in the Great North Run.
Scott Worboys, of Cadney, will line up alongside double Olympic champion Mo Farah and former world and Olympic champion Haile Gebrselassie.
He has already raised £860 for his chosen charity this year, Kidney Cancer UK.
Part of the cash was raised by posing with Brigg residents doing the mo-bot celebration made famous by Mo Farah.

"To be in the same race as those two will be amazing," he said.
"The start line is about a kilometre long so that will be the closest that I get to them.
"My wife at the finish line will have more chance of seeing them than I do."
Scott will take part in the race on Sunday, September 16.
He began his fundraising efforts in 2010 and has raised around £5,700 for Cancer Research.
"This will be the first time that I have raised money for the charity that is more personal to me," he said.
"My mum died of bowel cancer and my friend's brother died from pancreatic cancer, so I have raised money for them before.
"Running for charity is the biggest challenge, but it is great to do something to support them."
Scott says that of the biggest differences for him during this race will be the size of the run.
"The 10ks usually have about 5,000 people, but there will be 54,000 running in this," he said.
