The Nijmegen Four Days Marches for Charity

Event dates: 18th July 2023 – 21st July 2023

Terry Brookes, Jimmy Blackhurst and Ian Partridge are raising money for Young Lives vs Cancer, Ronald McDonald House Charities (UK) and EMMA'S BUBBLE TRUST

Our story

Ollie was diagnosed with Leukaemia (AML) in May 2022, at the age of 5. Since then he has been on a very difficult journey. Ollie has had a complicated recovery following his bone marrow transplant. Requiring a prolonged admission at The Royal Marsden Hospital and also an extensive stay in Paediatric Intensive Care at St Georges Hospital.
Thankfully we have been helped along the way by some terrific charities. Without these charities, I don’t know how many families would cope as childhood cancer destroys all aspects of family life. To help repay these charities for their tremendous support, I and two other R.E.M.E veterans have signed up to complete the Nijmegen 4-day Marches 2023 to raise money, so that these charities can continue their tremendous support for others.


Thank you for checking out our page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Young Lives vs Cancer, Ronald McDonald House Charities (UK) and EMMA'S BUBBLE TRUST.

We have actually done it!!

With gift aid, we have smashed our target of £25,000.00.
So now it is time to relax for this year and say a big thank you.

First and foremost l need to thank James (Jimmy) Blackhurst and Dave Oakes for their fantastic support before, during and after the Nijmegen Marches event and Ian Partridge for his valiant effort and donation.

Then there's Josh Davidson and Steven Jones, for arranging the incredible charity golf day.

Maria Clarke-Green, Angela Woodgate and all at Selsted CofE Primary School for their collections.

Sam Goss for arranging the Elham Cricket Club charity day.

Thomas and The Artichoke Chartham for arranging 3 charity quiz nights.

And Martin Robinson CEO IRISS INC for his tremendous donation.

Eamon Curley director of E&P Catering Butchers Coventry.
Chris Jarrett, owner of The Chopshop Barbers Folkestone.
And Wullie Blackhurst owner of WJB Consultants.

Then there's you. Without you and everyone else who has donated, we would have never achieved our incredible target. On behalf of myself, Ollie, Aga and the three charities, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Until next year 😊.

After a beer or two to celebrate our completion of the Nijmegen Marches, we have decided to leave the donation site running for another month at least. There are so many that have, if not actually pledged. Certainly implied that they wish to donate to our causes. So by keeping the give as you live page open it will give those people the ability to keep to their word. The physical challenge may now have been completed, but now starts the serious challenge of reaching our target.
There are so many people that have helped us along the way that we need to thank, over and above all that have already donated. That will be done in our final update.

Yesterdays update can only come this morning, as we needed to firstly know how one of the team was faring after two grueling days. Unfortunately Ian isn't able to start day three as the last two days have taken there toll. It was a valiant effort. Onwards and upwards, Jimmy and l will be starting day three on what is known as the seven hills of Groesbeek'.
