Story

Our dear brother John Barrett has recently been diagnosed with an aggressive stage 4 brain tumour. Sadly, the prognosis for John is not positive and his medical team are focusing on making John as comfortable as possible. Many of John's friends, colleagues and family members have asked how they can help at this difficult time. Therefore, we have set up this page to allow events to help raise funds for John's care and the welfare of his young son Sean. When John received his diagnosis the main concern for him was the future of his son Sean. We as family members, colleagues and friends would like to help ease John's concerns and let him focus on his battle with this terrible illness.

The first event taking place is being organised by John's Momart colleagues Paul Clark and Dave Perrott who will be doing the Thames Path Challenge on 9th September 2017 www.thamespathchallenge.com . Our friend Richard Quaresma of Dockside Personnel has also kindly agreed to do the Thames Path Challenge. This is a gruelling 100k (62 mile) walk and we thank Paul, Dave and Richard in advance for taking up this challenge and supporting John & his family.

Another event taking place is a 10k run in Greenwich Park on 26th November 2017 being organised by David Ronan and friends. The Movember Run supports charities related to men's health. If you want to participate in this run on behalf of John then contact dronan24@googlemail.com

There will be other events in support of John and we will keep you posted on this page as these arise.

On behalf of John and his family we would like to thank everyone for their support and concern shown at this very difficult time.

    Message from John Barrett..... The two messages below from Dave, Paul & Richard sum up what an incredible challenge The Thames Path is. I cannot thank you three friends enough for what you have done over the past 48 hours. A big thank you to those who turned out to support Dave, Paul & Richard during the actual walk. To my colleagues at Momart, my friends and my family, I am deeply touched by your kind words of support and the extremely generous donations that you have made. I will do my best to thank you in person. Love from John.

    Hi All, I woke up feeling extremely proud this morning. So we didn't make the 100km but being there to see one of your good mates push himself for 10km in absolute agony when he really should have stopped, never moaning once about the pain and just getting on with it is worth more to me then any finishers medal. The money keeps rolling in for John this morning. Seriously guys we cant thank you enough for support and generosity. Dave, Paul, Rich

    Hi all, We are now at the 50km point and due to injuries this is where we will finish. We started as a team and will end as a team. The support shown for John has made me very proud and we know he is delighted with everyone's efforts and generosity. The way everyone has come together for him is amazing and we thank you all for for your support. Lets get some more events organised and smash past the £10000! Thanks to you all, Dave, Paul and Rich
