Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. We’ve saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival has doubled over the past 40 years. We fund research into more than 200 types of cancer from the most common, such as breast, bowel, lung and prostate cancers, to rare types of tumours and children’s cancers, we support groundbreaking science that benefits everyone.
The Daisy Garland
A family-run national children’s charity providing active support for children with drug-resistant epilepsy and their parents/carers. The charity was set up in memory of our daughter Daisy who tragically died at 6 years of age from SUDEP (sudden unexpected death in epilepsy patients). We provide NHS hospitals with ketogenic dietitians - a medically recognised and accepted way of treating drug resistant epilepsy. This diet is not widely available on the NHS due to lack of funding. We also provide grants for night-time breathing monitors to children with drug-resistant epilepsy.

Thanks very much for looking at our fundraising page.

Vanessa and I will be running the Cambridge Half Marathon in late February 2016.

We have chosen to split the fundraising for two charities.

The first is Cancer Research UK due to so many close friends being affected by cancer over the last couple of years. I had my own scare earlier in 2015 and after six anxious weeks was thankfully given the all clear. I can only begin to imagine what life is like living with cancer so anything we can do to help beat it can only help.

The second is The Daisy Garland who help children and their families affected by epilepsy. They have been of great help and support to a great mate, his family and their beautiful warrior daughter who is affected by epilepsy on an all too frequent basis. The work they do helps to fund the £45,000 required to get a ketogenic dietician which is not currently funded by the NHS. More info can be found at

Whatever you can spare will be gratefully received and if you know anyone else who could be willing to get behind us please direct them here.

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. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.
