LIVES have always delivered amazing care and compassion to everyone they help, but they’re also so kind, caring and supportive

Then nine weeks later, Luke will be in the university city of Oxford for his second half-marathon, both of which he is running in aid of LIVES First Responders.

Luke said: “I’ve seen LIVES responders in action first-hand when I was working at a care home and, more recently, at my local school.

“They have always delivered amazing care and compassion to everyone they help, but they’re also so kind, caring and supportive.

“It’s incredible to think that they are all volunteers and I was therefore really happy to be able to help raise some vital funds for the charity.”
