We increase the pool of stem cell donors to give patients a second chance of life


Thanks for visiting my JustGiving page and helping me get closer to my target in raising money for Delete Blood Cancer.

I wanted to take this challenge on – even though I am scared of heights and mountains – as I wanted to do something different to raise money for a charity that is close
to my heart.  Unfortunately my Children’s Grampy suffers from blood cancer and, having seen the affects and suffering of a great man, I wanted to raise as much money doing a challenge that will stretch me to my limits. 

My friend Jane Petrucci challenged me to do something big this year and the mountain in the Brecon Beacons is going to be big – perfect for my challenge for such a worthy cause.  Add in the fact I have had an Achilles injury since January which is on the mend thanks to The Sports Injury Clinic in Fordham and the run being classed as tougher than marine training and add in my fear of heights, its going to be a tough one, but myself and Jane are ready for the challenge

I work for Pure – specialist professional recruitment for the East of England – and we aim to raise as much money as possible and give back to our community.
