Interior designer and insurance broker walk Hadrian’s Wall for cancer charity

Neil Brimble, the director of Cheltenham interior design company Abbey Business Interiors and John Phillips, managing director of Gloucestershire insurance brokers John Morgan Partnership are walking the 84 miles of Hadrian's Wall in aid of Linc.

Linc are a Cheltenham based charity that fund chemotherapy for leukaemia. LINC was originally set up by Dr Gill Rouse in 1998 and to this day the Rouse family are still very heavily involved with their daughter Claire Charlton as Head of Fundraising.

Twenty-three years on, LINC continues to do an amazing job of raising funds to provide emotional and financial support to individuals and their families from Gloucestershire and beyond who are going through intensive chemotherapy for blood cancers.

When someone is diagnosed with leukaemia, they immediately start treatment and are put into isolation. LINC is there to ensure those who need to stay in isolation wards are as comfortable as possible, but they also provide financial assistance when needed.

Neil Brimble has completed a number of charity endeavours in the past.

Abbey Business Interiors completed a 250-mile cycle from Paris to London for The Meningitis Trust in 2011. Neil also skied 100,000 metres for Scope, a charity that supports disabled people 15 years ago. And 20 years ago, he walked the length and breadth of the Great Wall of China in aid of Cheltenham's National Star College.
