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.”
