Over the finish line – John Roberts completes his fourth charity run
John Roberts of Selby-based White Rose Fuel Services has completed his fourth (and last) run in memory of his daughter, Vicky, who lost her fight against cancer earlier this year.

John completed the 5k Big Fun Run in Leeds in 34 minutes and raised £565 for Cancer Research UK.

Over the last few years John has raised nearly £3000 for the charity but said: “Old age has taken its toll and whilst the mind is willing, the knees are not! I would like to thank all my friends and colleagues within the industry who have supported and sponsored me again and again.

“Vicky was a wonderful daughter who is missed greatly by all who knew her. We can only hope that the money raised will help other young people to have a chance.”
