£1000 Raised for Cancer Research

crukSince 2014, all profit from the sale of John’s books are being donated to Cancer Research to help pay for research and bring forward the date that this horrible disease is consigned to history.

I have just setup a fundraising page on the Cancer Research web site and have transferred £1000 from book sales so far (since April 2014). So a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has bought books so far.

You can see the fundraising page – and even make a donation! – at:
