I am Angela Knowles, and very proud to be a Trustee of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

I am 67 years and live in the Yorkshire Dales with my husband Charles, who is a retired Vicar. I am a retired Registrar of Births, Deaths and Marriages.

I have two children and four grandchildren ranging from 11 to 19 years.

I became involved with Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research when my first husband, John, died of Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. After his death, with some very good friends, we created a certain calendar in his memory which caused a "bit of a stir"!  Our story went on to be made into a film and stage show which has been worldwide.

I am delighted to have been part of a team which has raised a substantial amount of money for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research which is being used to help beat blood cancers.
