Greg continues mission to collect cancer funds

Have your say

A MAN diagnosed with terminal cancer is continuing his fund-raising drive with a coffee morning.

Ever since Greg Lamb was told by medics he had cancer of the oesophagus last year, he has been taking part in a range of activities to boost the funds of various cancer charities.

In the past 12 months he has taken part in a zip slide across the River Wear, trekked along Hadrian’s Wall, participated in the Great North Run and leapt from a plane in a skydive from 13,000 feet to raise cash for good causes. On Friday, the 35-year-old will host a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support at the Grey Horse, Front Street, East Boldon, from 10am.

The event is one of a number taking place throughout the country as part of the charity’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event. Mr Lamb, from Front Street, said: “All money raised from the sales of coffee and cake will go to Macmillan as we do our bit to make sure no one has to face cancer alone.”
