Christian, Henry and I decided to have some fun promoting the Christian Blandford Fund
Tag Archives: Peter
For Claudia and Peters 10th Wedding anniversary party guests were encouraged to donate to the Christian Blandford fund in lieu of presents. Several hundred pounds were donated.
Christian and Claudia went to the launch of a new campaign at the Royal Marsden in Sutton yesterday. They asked to use one of our photos for the campaign, guess who they chose to take the mickey out of?
Claudia was very excited to meet Dermot O’Leary and once Christian recognised him as the bloke who introduced Michael Jackson recently at the O2 even he was impressed. As they were saying goodbye, Christian tapped Dermot on the leg and whispered “What’s Michael Jackson like?”. Claudia was interviewed by the BBC and apparently has been on the news a lot today but we have missed it! Photos to follow but here is a link to the BBC website. Here is a link to Claudia’s interview.
We have been home for 10 days now and Christian is improving day by day although he is still a bit weak. We are hoping to be able to have his Hickman Line removed after radiotherapy and before we go to Spain mid July so he will be able to swim in the pool!
Fortunately, we came home Saturday evening and got a good night’s sleep ahead of Sunday’s run.
It was a fantastic event, the photographer Jonathan Cook has taken loads of photos, it will take a bit of time to process them all, there a few here.
If you are one of the people who have generously pledged then you can pay either by cheque to me or online here. If you meant to pledge something but didn’t get around to it, it is not too late. Either way please forward the payment confirmation to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
First things first, Christian has been pretty well recently hence the lack of updates. His hair is growing back a bit and his speech is coming on very well. In true Blandford/Parish style, it is now tricky to keep him quiet.
Yesterday was the 10km run that I have been talking about. Imanaged to drag myself around the full distance in a leisurely 56 minutes, and have been barely able to move since.
If you were kind enough to sponsor me please send a cheque to me at
Thanks to your generosity and Morgan Stanley’s matching, the Pinkney ward at St George’s will receive over £45,000. It should make a real difference.
