Teenage Cancer Trust Fundraising
Joe Lunn is 17 years old and a member of Sutton Cricket Club, something he has been since he was 7. He has been undergoing chemotherapy at the Royal Marsden Hospital for a rare form of cancer known as Synovial Sarcoma. The Teenage Cancer Trust supports the unit where Joe’s treatment is taking place and Sutton Cricket Club helped to raise funds for this charity. Follow the link to a letter from Dave Lunn.
