Our chosen charities are Ovarian Cancer Action and Platform For Life, as we have family members who have suffered from conditions these charities support.
Funds raised for Ovarian Cancer Action will go towards raising more awareness and further research to improve diagnosis and treatment. Ovarian cancer is the biggest gynaecological killer in the UK, claiming the life of a woman every 2 hours. Only 44% of women diagnosed survived beyond five years.
Funds raised for Platform for Life charity will provide mental health counselling for those that can’t afford to seek help ordinarily.
We will be holding a series of social and charitable events throughout our year ahead to help us raise much needed funds for our charities.
Neil Tidd (Mr President), will be running the Manchester half marathon with my daughter Samantha in support of ovarian cancer.

Thank you so much for your support
