Lets help get them over the line ...

Our 'Skiathos loving friends' Simon and Donna are running the Great Manchester 10K for Bowel Cancer UK ...

Something very dear to our heart, and that of many others


Many of you have followed Kamila's (SWMBO) 'Fight for Life' as she has fought, and continues to fight this awful disease.

Now this Easter it will have been a long, and at times very traumatic five years ago (today) that she embarked on a life changing journey. One that has cost us so much, and pains us to this day ...


Bowel cancer is the fourth most common cancer in the UK, after breast, prostate and lung cancers. Over 41,000 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer every year in the UK. Whilst more than nine out of ten new cases (94%) are diagnosed in people over the age of 50 bowel cancer can affect any age. More than 2,400 new cases are diagnosed each year in people under the age of 50, and 1 in 14 men (7%) and 1 in 19 women (5%) will be diagnosed with bowel cancer during their lifetime.

Like us Simon and Donna know many people, who have been impacted by this awful condition. Please visit their just Giving page and please support them at

as they raise funds to help others, perhaps someone you know and care for ...

Thank you
