Prostate Cancer UK
Prostate Cancer UK fights to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life. We support men and provide vital information. We find answers by funding research into causes and treatments. And we lead change, raising the profile of the disease and improving care. We believe that men deserve better.
Leukaemia CARE

Not only do we support patients, but their carers and families too. Leukaemia CARE provides support in many different ways, including: 1. A 24-hour Freephone CARE Line (08088 010 444) 2. Information booklets 3. A Nurse Advisor one the CARE Line every week 4. One-to-one buddy support 5. Campaigning on behalf of patients 6.

Up-to-date online patient information on the website (www.leukaemiacare.org.uk)
Barts Charity
Barts Charity is an independent registered Charity which supports the hospitals within Barts Health NHS Trust. Your support could help to provide state of the art facilities and equipment; cutting-edge research and innovations in treatments and will ensure the best possible standards for our patients, staff and local communities. The hospitals still rely on the generosity of donors and volunteering from people in our diverse local communities and from those further afield. The Charity’s vital work cannot continue without the help of people like you.
ACLT - African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust
ACLT is a charity committed to helping provide hope to patients living with blood cancer and other illnesses where a matched donor (stem cell, blood or organ) is required to save a life. Our work is driven by a belief that no one should die waiting for a donor to become available. Through our work, we improve odds of finding matches by registering potential donors on mass from all ethnicities, with a focus on donors from the African and Caribbean communities. This is due to an extreme shortage of African and Caribbean potential donors, signed to all three donor registries. ACLT also provide support and advice to patients and their families, from diagnosis, throughout treatment, recovery and sadly (in some cases), while supporting the patient and family during end of life, where treatments have not been successful.
AMMF - The Cholangiocarcinoma Charity
AMMF is the UK's only cholangiocarcinoma charity. Our main aims are to raise the awareness of cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer), to provide information to those who need it , and to support specialised research teams in their work to find the causes, methods of earlier diagnosis and treatments for this devastating disease.

Thank you for visiting this page... firstly I am not a runner and have never enjoyed running unless I have been distracted by a ball and some form of game.

Having watched and cheered on family and friends whilst they took on the London Marathon challenge (especially Lee last year, who just smiled all the way round, despite being told by the doctor not to do it !), you cannot fail to be inspired by the thousands taking part and the hundreds of thousands who come out to support. I am a proud Londoner and Marathon day is one of the best days in the capital for atmosphere and community spirit.

I have always said if I was lucky enough to be selected in the ballot I would do my best to survive running 26 and a bit miles.

After many years of being in the 'lucky' rejected pile, this year despite another rejection VLM took pity on me and gifted me a place.

As I am not tied to raise an amount of money for a single charity I have decided to split the money I raise to several charities that I have supported previously, and a couple of others whose work have inspired me recently.

  • Prostate Cancer UK- in memory of my Uncle Eric, who sadly passed away last year, a sportsman and true gentleman, This charity is doing great work to reduce the amount of men who die each year from this disease through awareness and provides vital information and support.

  • The Barts Charity and specifically the Chris Dobbs Leukaemia fund (SPF SPF1011)- in memory of Sarah Hammond. Our friends and family have raised over £50,000 in the 20 years since Sarah passed away in a road accident aged 24.  Sarah was a runner and a coach who regularly raised money for the charity.

  • AMMF- in memory of Nick Francis, a friend and colleague who was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma (bile duct cancer) four weeks before he passed away in 2014 aged 33. AMMF is the only UK charity which focuses on this form of cancer, raising awareness and supporting research in to methods of earlier diagnosis and treatments. Friends and colleagues have raised over £6000 for AMMF in Nicks memory to date. Nick, like me applied in the Marathon ballot annually and I am hoping his spirit will keep me going until the finish line.

  • ACLT- as a thank you to their hard work and dedication to the cause of providing hope to the patients living with blood cancer, or other illnesses where a matched donor is required to save a life. When Tommy Simpson, the brave 5 year old child of our friends Nigel and Maxine was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia, ACLT launched the #match4Tommy campaign to find a stem cell donor. Against all odds a donor match was found, Tommy has since responded well to his treatment but should Tommy relapse, a lifeline is now there for him if he needs it. Tommy’s Mum Maxine is running as well and hopefully a bit more support will give her a well deserved boost.

  • Leukaemia Care- A close friend was recently diagnosed with Leukaemia and his attitude to this life changing news has been inspiring. He is raising money for this national blood cancer support charity that ensure anyone affected by blood cancer receives the right information, advice and support at this vital time. A contribution from my sponsorship will go towards his efforts in raising some money to thank those providing support.

Thank you for taking the time to read, and I am grateful for your support, I am going to need every form of inspiration going to get me to the end!

Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
