My motivation is my Grandad Bert

In memory of

Grandad Bert

07 Aug 1928 - 15 Apr 2018

I’m taking part in the 5k race for life this year and would be really grateful if you donated! My grandad passed away on the 15/04/2018 after battling lung cancer. No one should have to suffer like he did. Watching a loved one in pain is the hardest thing to experience and watching them go is even harder: I’d like to raise some money to support other families going through the most difficult time of their lives too.

The fee that I’ve paid does not go to cancer research and covers the costs of setting up the event so the donations are so important otherwise it would be pointless in doing the run. If you have a spare £1 please donate! Any donations at all will be greatly appreciated :)

Rest in peace Grandad Bert, I will love and miss you forever. There will always be a hole in our lives which could never be filled. We all love and miss you so much ❤️
