Kingerlee Homes Managing Director, Tony Woodward is taking part in the Rotary of Oxford Fun Run this weekend, along with a team of 11 others from Kingerlee, in aid of our charity of the year Maggie's Oxford. This is what Tony said about his inspiration for taking part in the run in support of Maggie's:

"I suggested and supported the adoption of Maggie’s as the Kingerlee Group Charity of the Year because I had been made aware of the support that they were giving to a fellow prostate cancer patient, who was receiving his 37 sessions of radiotherapy around the same time as me.
I am very lucky to have an extremely supportive family around me, but he was a widower, living on his own and slightly isolated from his children. When you are first diagnosed it is difficult to put your health problem into context alongside everything else going on in your life. Without a supportive family, I understand that the Maggie’s support was crucial for this chap as he got to grips with the extent of his cancer and the treatment, and the side-effects. For me, just knowing that Maggie’s knowledgeable support was there if I needed it, was a comfort."
