I'm taking part in Dryathlon, and not drinking alcohol in January to raise money for Cancer Research UK .

In memory of


07 Jan 1958 - 08 Apr 2018

Thanks for visiting my fundraising page. This January I’m taking on Dryathlon and raising money for Cancer Research UK by ditching the drink for one month and fundraising for life-saving research. Please support me by sponsoring me. All my amazing friends and family know how much cancer has touched my life. I have lost too many wonderful brave people, to this horrible disease (in particular my lovely husband Glenn who has been an inspiration to so many people with his positive attitude and bravery) this is also to help CRUK fund further research in the hope that it helps other people I love and care for who are currently going through treatment, dealing with secondary breast cancer or in remission from cancer. I love you all. I have to confess that I will be paying a 'Tipple tax for one day in January, the 7th which is Glenn's birthday. He would have been 61 and I will raise at toast to him with a pint of Cornish Ale and will continue the dryathlon onto the 1st Feb to complete the full 31 days dry.
This really is a big deal for me and it would mean a lot if you could sponsor me, however small the amount, as every little helps. Please please sponsor me if you can. Bring on the water!!! xxxxxxxxxx
