Firstly we would like to thank you for taking the time to read our GoFundMe page. 

A few days before Christmas our friend, Matthew Bolton was diagnosed with Oesophagus cancer. Matthew is in a lot of pain and can barely eat, he has lost a staggering 6 stone since September. Matthew is extremely tired and since his diagnosis he's already had 6 blood transfusions. Chemo is due to start in the next few weeks and later in the year he will under go a 7 hour operation to remove the tumour.

If any of you know Matthew then you'll know that life has been extremely hard for him and his partner in the last few years. Three years ago Matthew and his partner sadly lost their baby boy at 42 weeks, no explanation was ever given. A year after their loss they welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world. However, their daughter had been diagnosed with Spina Bifida and was told she would have no quality of life. Beau proves the Doctors wrong every single day but at 2 years old she has already had 7 operations.

Whilst Matthew remains to have a positive attitude about his diagnosis, he can't help but stress about the financial pressures he and his partner will now face.

Matthews friends have decided to endure a grueling 67 mile walk to Bolton for Bolton. The walk will take place on 10th March starting from the Game Cock Pub in Harworth, Doncaster and finish at the Town Hall in Bolton.

As well as donations this is a sponsored event and forms are available at request. 

Your support is greatly appreciated.

5 miles short of checkpoint 3 and we've had a stop. This is beyond tough. Physical but more mental for me.

We safely arrived at checkpoint 2, the Dunkirk pub 30 miles in. Great effort from two nurses that helped treat Matthew. This is where it really gets difficult and tiredness kicks in so please keep donating.
