He said: “I first started doing all this around ten years ago, when we lost both my gran and auntie to cancer.
“I’ve seen good friends doing their best to cope when their child develops cancer, and seen other friends go through the process of fighting the disease, and quite frankly wish I could do more to help.”
You can still donate to Sean’s fundraiser on the Cancer Research UK website.
