Woman planning China trek for friend
A Sheffield woman will trek the Great Wall of China in October to raise money to cure a friend’s illness. Kerry Varley, of Wadsley Bridge, aims to help fund a clinical trial to find a cure for myeloma. A friend, Matt Bird, aged 40, of Barnsley, has been diagnosed with the disease. A team of researchers in Sheffield is leading the way in finding a cure, but they need £90,000 to fund a trial.
