Everyone will be delighted that popular former Liberal Democrat MP for Edinburgh West John Barrett is well on the road to recovery after suffering from Cancer last year. After surgery and 6 gruelling months of chemotherapy, he was in fine form as he chaired the Vince Cable Q and A in Edinburgh in July.
John's daughter Sarah Atsa is doing a 10k run next month to raise money for MacMillan Cancer Support. who have been great in the way they've supported John. Many of us will know how brilliant they are at giving superb information and support to the whole family, not just the person who's ill.
We would have been lost without them when my mother-in-law was ill. They even came out on Christmas Day when we needed them.
If you can, please support Sarah's fundraising effort here.
