Book is launched

A BOOK written by former Mercury reporter Richard Woolley is being launched in Cromford.

Richard died aged 26 in October 2009 after a courageous 18-month fight with leukaemia.

On Saturday, Scarthin Books will be launching My Marathon For Love, compiled from a journal kept by Richard as he fought his battle.

The event will take place between 2pm and 5pm.

The book will raise funds for charity.
