Changing Room Chat: Lennon joins Beefy’s charity walk

CELTIC manager Neil Lennon will be putting his best foot forward next week alongside cricket legend Ian Botham in a charity walk to help raise money for the Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research charity, which aims to beat childhood blood cancers.

The Glasgow leg of ‘Beefy’s Great British Walk’ takes place next Thursday, with part of the ten-mile route going through Drumpellier Park, Coatbridge, when members of the public can join it, between 1pm and 2pm.

Lennon said: “I’m delighted to be able to take part in this event which is raising money for such an important and worthy charity.

“Of course, I’m only walking a small part of it. Ian Botham’s trekking round Britain and it’s an incredible thing he’s doing. I know that Ian’s done so much great work over the years for charity, so he deserves all our support.

“And I would encourage as many people as possible to get involved next week for this great cause.”

To date, Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research has invested £2.4 million in research into blood cancers in Glasgow, including research at Yorkhill Children’s Hospital.
