CVC’s own Marathon Man!

We are very proud to announce that one of our Directors, John Dunstan, recently took part in the London Marathon in aid of a charity which is very close to his heart, The Scleroderma and Reynaud Society UK (SRUK).  John and his daughter Charlotte raised over £5,000 to buy a specialist machine for the Royal Free Hospital in London.

The Royal Free London offers ongoing clinical care to patients suffering from scleroderma and Raynaud’s phenomenon and undertakes clinical and basic scientific research into the root causes of these diseases.

Scleroderma is a relatively uncommon autoimmune condition whereby the body attacks its own tissues. The connective tissue underneath the skin and surrounding internal organs and vessels is affected, resulting in thickening of the skin and problems with internal organs and blood vessels. While there is currently no cure, most people with scleroderma lead a full, productive life.
