Firefly is a charity who provide free transport from Doncaster and the surrounding area to Sheffield treatment hospitals for cancer patients and their families.

During 2016 I did some volunteer driving for Firefly and met some great people while doing this. The service Firefly provide is invaluable to so many people and is run completely non profit, meaning anything raised goes straight back into the charity.

After my attempt to complete the Sundowner triathlon last September was scuppered by multiple punctures on the bike leg, I got a place in the London Marathon through my running club Danum Harriers so I have decided to try and raise some more money for them. Please give what you can, anything and everything is appreciated and goes to a brilliant cause.

Further details about Firefly can be found on their Facebook page here
