    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Seven years ago, I was diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy.

    DCM is a disease of the heart muscle where it becomes over stretched. This means it’s unable to pump blood around your body efficiently and currently there is no cure for it.

    For me, DCM developed v-e-r-y slowly. It went undetected for at least 10 years before I noticed a downturn in my health.

    At its worst, it meant walking from one room to another, or worse, going upstairs would leave me gasping for breath for about 5 minutes.

    It is currently stabilised with a cocktail of drugs including Bumetanide, Carvedilol, Citalopram, Digoxin, Eplerenone, Ramipril & Warfarin.

    In January 2012, I was fitted with a biventricular pacemaker which makes sure that both sides of the heart beat at the same time.

    Fast forward to December 2016, I wanted to set myself a difficult and meaningful personal challenge. It had to be something that would require training and dedication so I've committed to run the Hull 10K on Sunday 18 June 2017.

    When I set the challenge, I was unable to run 100 metres without having to stop for breath.

    Please help me raise funds for Cherry Burton CC for various projects and items of importance.

    Unwanted cricket equipment, a used ride-on mower.

      Not the prettiest picture but taken just after I'd completed 5km on the treadmill. Many thanks to the donations coming in. A lot have been made by cash and cheques and so the actual is £250 more than on the total above. A big thankyou to Alex Calnan, Ant Hodgson & Sarah Kidd for the most recent donations and there is still time yet to help me get near to the target. And just to confirm to the cricket lads, that this will NOT being going towards an All Inclusive holiday ;-) Dig deep folks. 27 days to go..........

      Many thanks for the donation received from Carol Lawson. A very kind gesture - thank you. It's an uphill struggle and I've set myself a huge challenge both for the run and for the fund raising. I've read on this website that for every FB Friend that shares my page, it is worth on average £10 towards the I just need 450 Facebook shares. Let's see if it works ;-)

    They said I couldn't do it, they said it was dangerous. Think of your heart, they said. Did I listen? No, I did not. On Sunday 18 June, I will be running the Hull 10K to raise funds for Cherry Burton CC and various local cricket related projects. PLEASE HELP.
