Brave Neil will face his fears on O2 Arena
3:00pm Sunday 18th August 2013 in News
A CANCER victim’s friend is conquering his fear of heights to climb over the huge roof of the O2 Arena.
Neil Howell, of Stour Road, Harwich, will walk across the top of the 200ft-high famous venue to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
About seven young people aged between 13 and 24 are diagnosed with cancer every day in the UK.
Neil’s friend, who he did not want to name, is in her early 20s and has just gone into remission from acute lymphatic cancer.
He said: “I just want to raise a little bit of money to help them out – to do what I can."
