I'm fundraising to raise money for Cancer Research UK

Thank you for visiting my Fundraising Page. I'm abseiling down a 418 foot high tower in Northampton in September because it seemed like a good idea. Austin, my father, who was 90 a few weeks ago, has decided he doesn't want to do it so if you'd like to sponsor me to abseil and him to stay at home, please give generously. The money we raise will help fund life-saving research and to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

Your donation will go to the Shaldon Branch of CR UK. This is because Austin and Mary supported it when they lived there to be close to David, my brother, who lost his battle with cancer in 2000.
So many of us have been touched by cancer in such different ways. It's something that has to be beaten.
