“During lockdown, the majority of sporting challenge events were cancelled so I felt it was even more important to raise funds for The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity. I decided to do something that I hadn’t done before, and was possible in daily lockdown life"

“I have always wanted to do a Skydive. It’ll be an exciting and terrifying experience, but when I think how a patient feels going through cancer treatment, especially during a Pandemic, taking part in a Skydive suddenly doesn’t seem quite as frightening."
"I should be the last person anyone goes to for advice, but for anyone thinking of taking on a challenge event I would say just enjoy the event, don’t worry about others. Everyone is too busy worrying about themselves, no one’s going to laugh.”
"My stepdad has been receiving treatment for over two years now, and it has prolonged his life more than we could have ever imagined. We are so lucky, so the least I can do is raise as much money as I can to keep funding the amazing work they do."
"November marks my official 5 years of being cancer free! We decided to take part in Skydive Sunday to not only raise some money this year, but we wanted an exciting way to mark my 'cancerversary'. What better way to celebrate than to jump out of a plane!"
“Unfortunately, my brother Neil passed from cancer eight years ago; his treatment at Clatterbridge was excellent. The staff always put us at ease, their commitment, compassion and professionalism were world class, I can’t thank them enough.”
Mike decided to take on the Malaga Half Marathon, but due to the ongoing pandemic it has been postponed. Determined to carry on, Mike decided to take part in the Virtual Malaga Half Marathon, and has raised more than £600 for The Charity.
“Finding out that my old friend, and work colleague was given a terminal prognosis I knew I had to do something to help. In support of his treatment at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre, I decided to challenge myself and cycle more than 60 miles.”
