    From Sue Sharman

    From Sue Sharman

  • What will you remember most about them?

    "His courage, sheer determination, kind heart and great sense of humour"

    From Sue Sharman

I first set up this page when my husband died to support his wish to raise money for a charity that had helped him out when he battled cancer. He found their support invaluable and had great respect for Macmillans. We raised £1488 which was amazing and gave me great comfort to see how much Shaggy was loved and well thought of.

I'm now revamping this page as Shaggy's close ex army friends are taking on a walking challenge in November 2020 (along with anyone who wishes to join them) that Shaggy was planning to do to raise more money for Macmillans.

I first set up this page when my husband died to support his wish to raise money for a charity that had helped him out when he battled cancer. He found their support invaluable and had great respect for Macmillans. We raised £1488 which was amazing and gave me great comfort to see how much Shaggy was loved and well thought of.

I'm now revamping this page as Shaggy's close ex army friends are taking on a walking challenge in November 2020 (along with anyone who wishes to join them) that Shaggy was planning to do to raise more money for Macmillans.

............. RFN Mark ‘Shaggy’ Sharman wanted to challenge himself after beating cancer and whilst recovering in hospital he planned a fundraising 85 Mile / 137 Kilometres walk.

WHY?? Not only for the challenge after his 100K achievement, but to also say thank you to Macmillan for the treatment he received by raising funds for Macmillan to continue supporting cancer sufferers.
Sadly, Shaggy went to the Re-org (Heaven) on the 14th November 2019.

It was decided at his funeral we should get together and do Shaggy’s walk to complete his mission and raise as much money as we can to help beat cancer with Macmillan.

The walk is from University College London Hospital (UCLH) Macmillan Cancer Support Centre, Huntley Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1E 6EA to the Valiant Sailor, Capel Le Ferne CT18 7JJ.
In a nutshell the walk is from London to his favourite watering hole at Capel Le Ferne following the Pilgrims way and the North Downs Way which are paths with varied terrain through towns and villages.

Spectacular scenery is very much a part of Shaggy’s chosen walking route!

Shaggy completed the 100K London to Brighton charity walk inside 24 hours for Blind Veterans UK.

Showing the true grit, determination and amazing resolve we knew he had.

Shaggy’s Mission now is 85 Miles / 137 Kilometres in 48 hours...........

This is going to be quite a challenge and we are hoping to raise as much money as we can in doing this and to make Shaggy proud.

Thank you so much for your support, it means so much!
