A FUNDRAISING drive in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support has beaten its £10,000 target.

Faiq Aziz decided to collect funds for the charity after his cousin Minha Ahmed, 18, passed away on April 16 two years after being diagnosed.

The Beckfoot Thornton School teenager’s death came just two years after her sister Emaan died suddenly at the age of 13.

Now Faiq and friends who did a daily run or walk over the month of Ramadan have collected more than £11,100 on their Just Giving page.

He was hoping himself and four friends could each run 734km over the holy month, a tribute to the 734 days that Minha battled with cancer from her diagnosis, totalling at least 3,670km but the idea snowballed.
