46 hours of early diagnosis research

I’m fundraising for Pancreatic Cancer UK

I announced,earlier this year, my intention to walk a marathon for charity. The charity is Pancreatic Cancer as this took my best mate Rob Marchbank. I previously took part in the Big Step Forward for the same charity. On July 15th this year I walked the half marathon distance.

The "big" one was always going to be a marathon. It was to mark reaching 70, which I still can't quite believe !

With my legs and feet damaged by Vasculitis this is a real tough one and I'm sure Rob would agree is a proper challenge.

My challenge will take place on Saturday 18th November 2023. I intend to start at Anfield were it all started for Everton and the home now of Liverpool. I will walk to Goodison, then onto Bramley Moor Dock and the new Everton Stadium. I will then make my way back to Southport and finish at the pier.

If you can please sponsor me, and also, why not share the message with your friends. 

Thank you for support and I hope to increase my funds for the Big Step Forward to beyond £1000.

Previous Half Marathon Challenge

A little while ago i announced that I intended to walk the marathon distance to mark a special birthday this year. I planned to train but that has proved difficult to achieve. So, I have signed up for this charity event on July 15th and will walk as far as I can and this can at least form part of my so called training and act as s guide for what i might be able to manage. 

The charity is of course Pancreatic Cancer. It took Rob and I miss him all the time. I hope you are able to support this very worthwhile cause and thank you to all who do. It really means a lot to me.


 I am taking part in The Big Step Forward to transform the future for those affected by pancreatic cancer.

It’s unacceptable that more than half of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer die within 3 months. Survival rates have improved enormously for most cancers. Sadly, for pancreatic cancer, this is not the case. But there is hope. 

The funds I raise will enable Pancreatic Cancer UK’s nurses to continue to be there for those affected by pancreatic cancer now and fund research to detect early, treat better and transform care.

The money you donate will have the power to make that possible. Thank you.
