My story

[p]On 22 April 2018 I am aiming to break a Guinness World Record for the fastest crustacean (male) to raise money for Dimbleby Cancer Care. [/p][p]The Dimbleby Cancer Care Centre helped my sister-in-law Harry as she went through chemotherapy in 2015. They offer vital care and support to people living with cancer and their families and carers. With money raised through fundraising, the charity runs information and support services through Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals and donates to national research projects.[/p][p]The crustacean I have chosen is a lobster, and need to beat a time of 3:13:18 to claim the record. It's a little bisque-y, but hopefully I won't lose too much time and have to claw it back. [/p][p]Anything you can spare will be hugely appreciated. [/p][p]Thank you[/p][p]Howard x[/p]
