Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
I retired about 4 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 & Jules Peter's selfless work, and the fact that leukaemia was part of my Dad's story at the end of his life 18 years ago. Having done this at gigs by The Alarm, The Damned, Holy Holy, Smiley's Friends and the last 3 years at IOW Festival, I was looking for other ways to support LHS when I heard about Rock The Canyons which took place in Oct 2018 - it was such an inspirational experience, and Iceland Rocks is another great chance to support this amazing cause and remember my Dad who I still think about every day. On top of that I wanted to do something to mark the fact that I turn 60 on 5th June this year.
My daughter Ella visited Iceland several years ago, and has always told me what an amazing and beautiful place it is. Trekking and camping for a week in Sept seems a great way to see it, with a chance of experiencing the Northern Lights if I'm really lucky.
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)
