I'm going vegan for a month to raise money for Cancer Research UK

Thank you for visiting my Cancer Research UK Veg Pledge page. I will be taking on a month-long vegetarian challenge to raise vital funds for Cancer Research UK. The money I raise will help fund life-saving research to help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured so would really appreciate your support.

Cancer has touched mine and my wife's family in many ways. September 2018 saw my Mother-in-Law pass away after a short battle with bowl cancer; she was 60 years old.

Cancer is taking loved ones away far too early. It needs to be eradicated.

I'm intending to raise money by encouraging the young people I work with to go vegetarian/vegan too. I'm keen to pass on knowledge about the importance of living healthy - healthy eating, keeping active and keeping emotionally on top of things.
For me, it’s the most important things for me during this challenge is to educate young people in order for them to make positive changes in their lives.

November will be a vegetarian month for me. I hope to raise money through this month to add vital funds to Cancer Research.

As an artist, I will also paint and sell art work to raise funds (links to follow).

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. Friends and family having been taken from us by this cruel disease in all its many forms.
This November I will be challenging myself to raise some money for Cancer Research by only cooking and eating vegetarian food.
I have in the past followed a part-vegetarian diet but have always eaten dairy products, fish and other white meats. During this coming month I will be looking for and learning about healthy alternatives to these.

I would particularly like to use this time to educate the young people I work with on the importance of having a healthy lifestyle. Hopefully we can all learn together.

If you are able to, please do sponsor me by clicking through on the link below.
I will keep everyone posted of progress.

I will also be raising funds at the end of the month via an online auction of some artwork.

This November I’m raising money for Cancer Research in remembrance of my Mother-in-law who passed away September 2018. By going vegetarian for at least one month, I would like to encourage young people I work with and others around me, to look at eating healthier, having more active lifestyles and keeping emotionally on top of issues in their lives.
