Crewkerne dad Bruce Martins is showing year-long dedication to young cancer patients by rowing one million metres in 2016 for CLIC Sargent.
55-year-old Bruce, an ex-rower from Bath, has promised to row around 3,000 metres a day for 365 days, with the aim of raising over £1,000 for CLIC Sargent.
Making a difference
Bruce said: “We all know someone who's life is being, or has been, affected by cancer. As an adult we can accept a level of chance that we may develop cancer at some stage in our lives, but to see children affected by this disease at such an early stage in their lives is difficult to comprehend, particularly as a parent.
“It is for those children and their parents that I am raising money.”
So far, Bruce has completed over 360,000 metres and has raised £210. To help spur on his progress please make a donation on his official JustGiving page.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Hannah Worrall said: “We are incredibly grateful to Bruce for his mind-blowing commitment to this charity challenge – go Bruce!”
