Members and staff at Luton’s Bannatyne health club are helping to raise awareness about a rare type of cancer.

The kind residents are volunteering to take part in a number of activities for Samuel’s Charity, which was set up in memory of Samuel Leib.

Samuel sadly passed away in 2014, at just nine years old from a rare cancer called Precursor Non-Hodgkins T-Cell Lymphoma.

Now Bannatyne is helping Samuel’s father, Martin, of Milton Keynes, raise funds for the charity, which supports sick children across the UK.

Activities include: London’s 10k Winter Run, the London to Paris bike ride and various Tough Mudder events.

Tim Morffew, regional sales and marketing manager for Bannatyne South, said: “Samuel’s Charity is a fantastic organisation and the work it does is truly inspirational.

“I’m humbled that Martin took the time to consider our company as a partner.”
