Freddies-friends-and-familyFreddie's friends and family raise £225,000 for Leukaemia research

When 16-year-old Freddie was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia, his family, friends and teachers were keen to do anything they could to raise funds for research into the future treatment of the disease. It was the start of three marathon fundraising events that would stop most people in their tracks! And their incredible efforts have raised a staggering £225,000, much to the delight of Freddie’s consultant Professor Anthony Goldstone and the research team from University College Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital. You can find out how they did it by visiting the news section of our new website www.uclhcharity.org.uk

Above: 3 of the ski guides (who found the challenge much tougher than they imagined) holding their Coeur Blanc solid silver (with a small diamond in top left corner) badges to allow them to immediately be recognised on the slopes as having completed the marathon ... they had to hand back their original bronze badges after the race and swap them for these..... we hope that all those who completed the challenge will always wear these badges with great pride in the village of Meribel.
