Story

In January 2018 a close friend and ex West Mercia police staff member Lisa McCALLISTER was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer. Lisa’s husband Alun a serving police dog handler with our force was also due to retire in May, so you can imagine this was a huge set back for the plans they had in mind.
Lisa spent the next several months being very ill and undergoing numerous chemotherapy sessions.

In July 2018 Lisa was given the all clear and she and Al were able to finally move on and enjoy retirement together.

In October 2018 Lisa was given the devastating news that the cancer had not only returned but had also spread to around her lungs and abdomen. There is no cure but she is undergoing palliative treatment to try and slow things down and give her more time. Despite this Lisa and Al continue to fight this with the upmost courage and dignity.

On 12th May 2019 I along with numerous friends/ colleagues of West Mercia Police will be running Market Drayton 10K in police riot gear including riot shields. The kit will be NATO helmet, PSU double overalls, gloves and kit belt. We are a mixed ability group with some who don't run and some who have run competitively so some will run in PSU boots and some in trainers. We are not aiming for any race time but will start and finish as a group.

Lisa has requested that all money raised goes to Severn Hospice which gives specialist care and support free of charge to families that are living with an incurable illness.

For every £5  donation you make your name goes into a raffle prize draw which will be a day or 2 after the race. If we don't know each other and you want to be included in the raffle draw please leave a CONTACT NUMBER or EMAIL ADDRESS in the comments section of the donation so I can contact you as otherwise I wont be able to contact you .


Thank you for your continued support
