A note about Orange John:

 

I’m passionate about supporting Children’s Cancer North because my sister speaks so highly of everything the charity has done and does for our family after my nephew was diagnosed with cancer. Other charities didn’t have the same level of commitment. I want to continually support and show my gratitude for how Children’s Cancer North helped and continue to help families who are going through similar life changing experiences. As a family, we are up to £39,000 in fundraising and with the upcoming Everest base camp the aim is £50k+. By offering these challenges, I’m hoping the power of the ripple effect can raise huge money for Children’s Cancer North long term, far more than I ever could raise single-handed. I’m passionate because I want to make a difference. I have my nephew back and I can never fully repay that, but I’ll try.
