Paul Barrow and Steve Bees

Paul and best mate Steve Bees raised over £1,000 during a mammoth journey from Bishop’s Stortford to the Spanish city of Barcelona in a specially decorated Subaru Forester.

My grandfather died of lung cancer when I was a one-year-old, and a friend’s mother also passed away from cancer. But I’m not alone in being affected – this is a disease that has an impact on millions of people around the world, and it’s a global problem.

“We were driving through so many countries on this trip – Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Vatican City, Monaco, Spain and France – so it seemed fitting to help prevent a disease that affects every country on the planet.”
