My story

[p][br][/p][p]Thanks to the Jon Van Geest Cancer research Centre, I have been allowed the absolute privilege of running the London Marathon 2020 in memory of Neil Kelso, a dear friend, boss and family member who sadly lost his battle with cancer earlier this year.[/p][p]Neil's passion for this particular charity was very clear for all to see. He worked relentlessly to gather as much money as possible for JVG, raising tens of thousands of pounds over the years through various charity events, festivals, tombola's, raffles and wine evenings. Even during Neil's weakest days, he still found the strength to continue raising money for the organisation he held so dear in his heart. [/p][p]When Neil created the 'Vic' he also created a community of friends. It is these friends who have played such a significant role in the amount raised for JVG, without Neil's determination and your support combined, we could have never raised such a tremendous sum of money. [/p][p]With your help, I believe that we can keep Neil's legacy alive forever. His dedication and passion for the Jon Van Geest Cancer Research Centre can live on through us all. [/p][p]The Jon Van Geest Cancer research Centre is locally based at Nottingham Trent University. The aim of their ground breaking research is to improve the early diagnosis and treatment of cancer, Something that will be particularly poignant to all of us whom have suffered at the hands of this awful disease. The charity relies on the support of public donations alone so all awareness and money raised will go a very long way in supporting the centre. [/p][p]Thank you for taking the time to read.[/p][p]Kim.[/p]

The 'Vic' was my local for many years. Less so now, but I still visit I and many others remember Neil, and was saddened to hear of his passing. Best of luck, for a fantastic cause
