Mrs. Jean Sissons of Bolsover is walking 8 miles in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.  When asked why is she taking part in the event Mrs Sissons said 'Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research are very close to my heart, they are such a worthwhile charity.  The charity is dedicated to finding better treatments and cures for all blood cancers, including leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.  I would encourage anyone to register for this event and support the charity.  The charity receives no government funding and must rely entirely on voluntary support '. 

Event Organiser Keith Griffiths said ''Mrs Sissons is an inspirational lady, she was the first person to register for the event and raising this amount of sponsorship is a great achievement.  Entrants who have registered for the walk are really looking forward to meeting Mrs Sissons and they will all be encouraging her to complete the 8 mile distance'.

Registrations are still open for the walk so don't miss out in taking part.  For full event information & registration please contact Keith (Event Organiser) by telephoning 07790 676715 or email



Another example of fine Derbyshire folk! (not that I'm biased, I was only born and brought up there!)


Jean you are one inspirational lady! All the best with the walk and thank you so much! You've certainly given me the kick up the bottom I need to get going with my Bikeathon training!
