Lewis Sirrell

WELL DONE to Colwyn Bay defender Lewis Sirrell who ran the Great Manchester Run Half Marathon this weekend to raise money for research into Motor Neurone disease.

The fundraiser is in memory of Billy Campbell, the brother of a friend of Lewis’s who died of the illness and Lewis has already raised over £500.

Motor neurone is a rapidly progressing neurological disease which attacks the nerves that control movement so that muscles no longer work.

“It is a horrible disease and having witnessed the impact it has not only the person but on everybody they love and care for, I wanted to do something in Billy’s memory to help with the research to find a cure,” said Lewis, who has never run a half marathon before.

Anybody who hasn’t already made a donation and would like to help Lewis, can do so on JustGiving via Lewis Sirrell is fundraising for Motor Neurone Disease Association (justgiving.com)
