We pioneer life-saving cancer research to help us beat cancer


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

I've challenged myself to complete 7 marathons in 7 days starting on the 6th March. The '7 marathons in 7 days' is an official event within Milton Keynes but due to Boris’s 3rd lockdown it has been postponed until 2022 so I will be attempting to do this event solo in Lincolnshire, feel free to follow me on Strava.

I've nominated the Charity 'Cancer Research UK' as my charity after hearing about two families who have suddenly had a Husband/Dad/Friend diagnosed with Cancer. So this is on behalf of Kevin Miley and Keith Brazier and their families.

Like so many people I've have been working from home since March 2020 and to keep fit I have been training and after a while it becomes mentally hard to stay in a routine.  So I decided the only way I was going to stay fit and keep a healthy routine was if I challenge myself to do something worthwhile to get through the multiple lockdowns. 

Every donation made will go directly to Cancer Research UK, so in advance I would like to thank you for your donations, every £1 makes a difference. 

My employer Barclays will be match funding all donations.
