Harry Shearer, Director of Shearer Associates, will be running the London Marathon in April to raise funds for Cobalt. Harry’s mum; and founder of the company Clare Shearer, has been a steadfast supporter of Cobalt. Harry’s nan also used to raise money for us by knitting blankets in her sheltered accommodation. She was later diagnosed with breast cancer and sadly passed away.
Harry is very close to his target of £1,500 so if you can spare a donation to support him, please visit his Just Giving page at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/harry-shearer3.
Harry said, “If I can raise some money for this fantastic charity and help other people in the position my nan was in, that would make her very happy”.

Harry is raising funds for The Teenage and Young Adults with Cancer Specialist Nurse provided by Cobalt. The post serves the needs of teenagers and young adults with a cancer diagnosis throughout Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. They will help those with a cancer diagnosis who often have different needs to adults and are at a vulnerable stage in their life, as well as the stress of ill health and the physical changes cancer may bring, which could include hair loss, amputation or fertility issues. Specialised support can be required not just in terms of their illness, but also in terms of their educational, financial and relationship needs.
