Marathon runner sells signed Tony Iommi book for charity
When keen runner Jonathan Spratt signed up to take part in this year's London Marathon, he wanted to raise money for a charity that really made a difference.
So he pledged to raise £1,750 for Victim Support.
Jonathan, who will be taking part in the marathon on his 30th birthday - April 21 - is now auctioning off a rare signed Tony Iommi autobiography in a bid to raise as much money as possible towards his target.
The Black Sabbath star, who rarely signs items, signed the book when Jonathan's brother-in-law Craig met him before Christmas. Craig Lewis, from Cheltenham, was at Tony's Birmingham home interviewing him with ELO legend Bev Bevan for BBC radio.

Jonathan, and architect from Upton St Leonards, said: "The book was very kindly donated to me by my brother-in-law. It's was Tony's own personal copy so it's a one off. It'd be an amazing present or collectable for any Black Sabbath fan.
"I've always wanted to do something special like the London Marathon and push myself to complete a challenge like it, and as it is being held on my 30th birthday in 2013 I thought what better year to enter than this? I am running for Victim Support who are a national charity helping those affected by crime. It's a great charity and hopefully I can help raise its profile and – with auctions like this – raise lots of money for them."
The item is now on sale on eBay with a current bid of £27. The auction closes on Sunday.
