Flying start for Robin Cancer Trust

A charitable trust that was founded by the family of Robin Freeman will be hosting a range of fundraising events in the Colchester area.

The Robin Cancer Trust was launched in April this year in memory of Robin who died from a form of germ cell cancer in December, aged just 24.

Robin’s 22 year old brother is the acting chairman of the group which will raise money for the St Helena Hospice where Robin passed away.

The charity had its official launch at V-Bar’s Mayday Mayhem and they raised £1350 for the Trust.

They raised a further £400 at a quiz night at the Wivenhoe Activity and Leisure Day.

They have now announced the events that they are planning for the rest of the year.

There will be a football game between Old Boys FC and Colchester United Supporters Association on 9th June. It will be held in Robin’s memory.

On 14th July, the Robin Cancer Trust Charity Golf Day and there are 24 places available.

On the 2nd June they will also be at the Jubilee Big Lick event at Sky Rooms.

Toby will also be completing some gruelling fundraising challenges himself.

He is taking part in a 1,000 mile bike ride around northern Europe in August, a sponsored distance swim at First Strokes swimming pool in Stanway and the 2013 London Marathon.
