Olivia chose to raise funds for CLIC Sargent, to celebrate the fifth anniversary of her 12-year-old daughter’s remission from leukaemia.

Olivia said: “My husband did the Barcelona Banger Rally in 2008 and raised nearly £6,000, and my parents have raised money too.

"Now she’s at the five-year mark, which means there is a 99 per cent chance it won’t come back, I thought it’s my turn.”

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager, Ben Herbert said: “CLIC Sargent is delighted that Mrs Gerrish is supporting CLIC Sargent to celebrate this important milestone"
