Delighted to say that I’ve officially raised over £10,000 for Leukaemia Care in celebration of reaching 10 years since my diagnosis of chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) in 2008.

I decided on a £10,000 goal because I was marking 10 years since diagnosis. I came up with a variety of ideas to raise the total including a gig at the world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool, a sponsored 10-mile walk, an eBay auction for signed Big Finish scripts, a number of non-uniform events at schools and much more. You can see everything I got up to by searching #Kris10 on most social media platforms.

I’ve smashed the target, raising an amazing £11,284.73 – and that’s without adding the Gift Aid, a conservative estimate would be nearer £13,500.

The funds will go a long way to helping us ensure we can be there for anyone affected by a blood cancer diagnosis.

A HUGE thanks to everyone who played a part in my #Kris10 year, it was hard work but really worth it. Thank you. Kris
