Family run 39th Berlin Marathon to raise funds
The Cheshire Asbestos Victims Support Group would like to congratulate the Marathon Team for completing the Berlin Marathon and raising over £1300 towards group funds in the process...
The team ran in memory of Tony Sadler, from Widnes, who had battled bravely against Mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos, for nearly 5 years. Sadly Tony finally lost the battle and passed away in 2011.
The team was made up of, photo left to right, Malcolm Robinson (Peters brother), Daniel Robinson (Grandson), Philip Sadler (son), Peter Robinson (son in law).
Peter Robinson Said “We ran the Berlin marathon to support the brilliant efforts of the Cheshire asbestos victims support group, they helped my father in law so much throughout his battle with mesothelioma. I would like to thank everyone involved in helping us raise in excess of £1300, Thank you”.
Brian Dellaway our Advice/Support Manager said “This was a fantastic effort and the donations are really crucial and very much appreciated. Without this kind of support the group would not be able to continue to provide a free service to sufferers of asbestos related illness and their families. Most of our finances come from donations and without them the group would not survive. This is not the first time the family have raised funds for us and you may remember, from our previous article, that Daniel ran the London Marathon in 2011”.
