Lindsay Kay said the funds raised would go towards supporting Macmillan services in the local area including at the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton, where there is an information support centre for cancer patients and their families. Cancer is the toughest fight most of us will ever face. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed, you need a team of people in your corner supporting you every step of the way.
