Neil, a keen swimmer has raised over £5000 for the OPA already after his wife, Ceri, was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer. He plans to swim 100km in seas, lakes and pools by December 2017.
Neil says “We’ve called this cancer Deirdre (Apologies to all human Deirdres!). She has absolutely no place at our wedding in September and we plan to fundraise for OPA to help others.”
Family and friends have also been extremely generous by donating to the OPA as wedding presents for the couple and this has made a major contribution to the overall sum raised – the wedding took place on 2nd September 2017.
The OPA wants to say a big thank you to Neil, Ceri and their family and friends!
