    Story

    After receiving the British Empire Medal (BEM) three weeks ago, I'm keen to continue my charity work by helping Prostate Cancer UK and Lincoln United FC! - Chris Illsley BEM

    Why I chose to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK and Lincoln United FC:

    Prostate Cancer affects 1 in 8 men but with the help of Prostate Cancer UK, this can be prevented. By raising money for this charity, I hope to be able to make a difference and to help more men survive prostate cancer and enjoy a better quality of life.

    Having worked with Lincoln United FC on both a business and personal level, I decided to work closely with them on this mission to help raise money which will go towards building suitable access and seating area for supporters with disabilities as well as vital funds to support the club.

    On Saturday 30th June 2018, I will be walking from Boston Stump following the Water Rail Way to Lincoln Cathedral in aid of Prostate Cancer UK and Lincoln United FC. The walk which has been organised by the club will start at 6am and is a total distance of 33 miles. I am aiming to raise £25 per mile and all proceeds will be split 50/50. I will be updating the Just Giving page so you can all follow me on my journey!

      WE DID IT! 💪 I’m so pleased to have walked over 35 miles on Saturday to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK and Lincoln United FC’s disabled access building plans. The walk was very hot but the route was beautiful and made walking in the heat much more bearable. ☀️ I’m astonished at the amount of donations so far - it’s great to see people dig deep and donate to two worthy causes. I’ll be closing this page on Friday 20th July which means there’s still time to donate if you haven’t already. ⏳ Thanks to everyone who's supported so far! 💖

      2️⃣ Days to go! We’ve had some lovely weather this week but it does mean that Saturday is going to be very hot - so my latest purchase is this hat! (I certainly don’t want to be getting sunburnt for 33 miles!🔥☀️) I’m absolutely overwhelmed by the number of donations and support I’ve received, as you can see my target has already been smashed! Thank you so much to everyone who’s helped achieve this, it really does mean a lot. Donations are still more than welcome as the money is going to two fantastic causes. Thanks, everyone!👍
