Our Story

We are  family and friends of Tony with two things in common – our love for Tony, who died last year aged 56 from bowel cancer, and our determination to help beat this disease.

If you knew Tony your life was enriched. For those of you who didn’t know him, in his sister Deborah's words, he was “ smart, generous, looked for the best in everyone he met and knew that life was for living and not for arguing or fighting. He also had a wicked sense of humour. I loved him and miss him like crazy”. To Tony family was the most important thing in his life, but he was also passionate about sport, especially football (not just his beloved Aston Villa), films, politics, in fact anything he could discuss or debate with you. Our lives will never be the same without him, but we are better people for having known him.

To honour Tony’s memory we have set ourselves the challenge (and for some of us it REALLY is a challenge) of walking from Corbridge to Gilsland along Hadrian's Wall from 3-7 September 2018.

Bowel Cancer UK aims to save lives and improve the quality of life for those affected by bowel cancer.

Almost 42,000 people are diagnosed every year in the UK. It is the UK’s 2nd biggest cancer killer, however it shouldn't be because it is treatable and curable, especially if diagnosed early. Nearly everyone survives bowel cancer if diagnosed at the earliest stage; however, this drops significantly as the disease develops.

Early diagnosis really does save lives .

 With your donation we can ensure research, diagnosis and treatment can continue and develop.

Thank you from all in our group – Mary (Tony’s wife), Peter (his son), Joan (his sister in law), and his friends Mary, Trevor, Tom, Roisin, Clare, Kate, Paul and Eileen.
