The daughter of an Old Malton couple will be running in this year’s London Marathon to support the Anthony Nolan Trust which found a stem cell match for her.
And her parents are holding a tea party on Saturday March 29 to help raise funds for the cause.
It is now six years since Joannah Hemesley, who lives and works in London, had a stem cell replacement transplant in her bid to combat leukaemia.
It was the Anthony Nolan Trust that found the stem cell match for her.
Her parents, Phil and Tony Hemesley, say they are “deeply grateful” for the support given to their daughter.
Now, to help raise funds for the trust, they will be holding the tea party at 3.30pm on March 29 at 99 Town Street, Old Malton. A similar tea party was held last Sunday.
Tickets costing £5 each can be obtained from them at (01653) 696370.
