My Grandfather passed away from Leukaemia, he had 8 great years after being given 5 at diagnosis. The work of charities to support those affected by blood cancer can't be underestimated, along with research into further treatments that can give families and friends longer with their loved ones.

I will be running the Great Midland Fun Run, an 8.5 Mile course on Sunday the 2nd of June with an added twist, a 20kg weight vest. Having started my training in the new year whilst juggling family life It is going to be a real challenge and any support you can give Leukaemia UK will be massively appreciated :) Nick Tremble
