Fund for Mel reaches £200,000

Congratulations to Burton Calendar Girls supporter Ian Leech who has seen the fund he and his family established in memory of daughter Mel - who died from non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma - hit the £200,000 mark.

You may remember that Carol and Elaine recently met Ian - and got to hold the Olympic Torch he ran with through the streets of our home town - Burton-on-Trent.

Mel died in 2008 and since then Ian has worked closely with the Lymphoma Association - who gave his family such important support in the dark days of Mel's illness - raising both funds and greater awareness of Lymphoma.

The total raised through the Melissa Leech Lymphoma Association Tribute Fund currently stands at £20,823.

Read more about how this milestone in fundraising was reached here on the Burton Mail website.

You can find out more about Mel at the website Mad4Mel.
