“I’m a fit 86 year old who has been fortunate to avoid ill health and want to raise funds for Cancer Research. Why? Because I like a challenge.
“We watch loved ones deal with the diagnosis, treatment and recovery [of cancer] and so I want to help and support in any way that I can.
Over £700 has already been raised through Mary’s online donation page, with 100% of the funds raised going to Cancer Research UK. It is hoped £1,000 can be raised.

Help Cancer Research UK improve results even faster.
