Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I retired about 3 years ago and since then have volunteered for LHS, encouraging people to "Get On The List" at gigs and music festivals to help identify marrow donors and matches. This was initially driven by a love of the music of The Alarm, Mike Peter's selfless work, and the fact that leukaemia was part of my Dad's story at the end of his life 17 years ago. Having done this at gigs by The Alarm, The Damned, Holy Holy, and the last 2 years at IOW Festival, I was looking for other ways to support LHS when I heard about Rock The Canyons - as the Grand Canyon is in the top 3 of my "bucket list" this seemed a great opportunity to do that, visit one of the most awesome places in the world, as well as get fitter and shed a few (in fact quite a few) unwanted pounds. In addition it's an opportunity to raise funds for a great cause, and do something in memory of my Dad who I still think about every day.
Apparently this trek doesn't come without risks - I've been told I'll need to shake out my clothes and sleeping bag ......... snakes!!!! ......... but I'm hoping that a week camping and trekking in the canyons will not only help me make a difference for LHS, but will also be something I'll remember for years to come. Altogether I'll be trekking and camping for a week from 15th Oct 18.
c) The new equipment programme - changing lives in the UK through the provision of state of the art equipment in hospitals and health centres aimed at enhancing the care and treatment people with cancer and their carers receive (managed in partnership with the NHS).
I expect everyone is inundated with requests for charity donations, but even a small amount would be very gratefully received by me and LHS. Thanks very much. Bill (Clive)
