Fundraising for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity
raised of £20,000 target
Donations cannot currently be made to this page
We fund life-saving research to help cancer patients everywhere.


Harrison was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL) on 23rd February 2014, six weeks after his third birthday.  

The treatment to cure him, is being led by The Royal Marsden, a centre of excellence for ALL, so he couldn't be in better hands. That said, the three year treatment path has already proved to be tough going.

We've been inundated with offers of support and help, so have set up this JustGiving page to give friends, family and our supporters an opportunity to join us in raising much needed funds, over the course of Harry's treatment, for The Royal Marsden.

To kick start the fundraising, Harry's sister Freya and cousin Sam, with some of their friends, signed up to run the Bushy Juniors 2km Park Run, this has helped to inspire others to get involved.  Team Harry fundraising events taking place are:
