Congratulations to Gary Gove who has so far raised over £1,500 for CAA by completing the Balmoral 10k. Gary ran in memory of his uncle William (Bill) who sadly passed away recently from mesothelioma.
Gary said: “I am taking part in this year’s Balmoral 10K & am proud to be running on behalf of Clydeside Action on Asbestos. Why have I chosen this charity? Quite simply because the disease has affected my family on more than one occassion. My grandfather died in 1986 at the age of 72 from an asbestos related disease. At the time of his death the effects of exposure to asbestos were becoming more apparent. During his working life in the Shipyards in Aberdeen & in the construction industry he was exposed to asbestos from building materials. Like their father his two sons followed him into the shipyards &construction industries.
My uncle was an electrician & was exposed to asbestos in the shipyards & while working in Donside Paper Mills. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma last year. My father has recently been diagnosed with pleural plaques. Sadly, my Uncle lost his battle against this disease and passed away on 1st April 2011.”
CAA would like to pass on our sincerest thanks and best wishes to Gary and the Gove family.
