1000 Smiles for May

On the 8th February 2008, May, the wife of our associate David Leigh died from cancer, aged 50. The single most important thing May was doing during the last year of her life was attending the Royal Marsden Hospital to take part in their developmental trials of new anti cancer drugs to help others.

Between the 9th & 20th of August 2008, David drove his wife's much loved 1927 Austin 7 Chummy 1000 miles to raise money for the Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign. For more details of the route David took and the events  held on the way, you can email David at and he will send you the "1000 Smiles for May" flyer and the route information, or click here to download the flyer.

[Even though David's sponsored event has now been completed, you still have the opportunity to give generously - the Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign needs all the help we can give them to defeat this terrible disease.]
