A Sad Farewell

30 January 2008

CHILDREN with LEUKAEMIA’s Chairman of Celebrity Friends and supporter Jeremy Beadle has died, aged 59.

His involvement with the charity was immense and included countless personal appearances, as well as heading up and advising on numerous fundraising campaigns.

We are all devastated by this very sad news. Jeremy was not only a close personal friend and an extraordinary entertainer, he was one of the most dedicated supporters this charity has ever seen.He compered the annual Paul O’Gorman Banquet and Ball, entertained the children at the Amazing Great Children’s Party every July and organised the Jeremy Beadle’s Quiz Party each year.

His support for CHILDREN with LEUKAEMIA knew no bounds and his dedication and commitment resulted in millions of pounds being raised in the fight against the UK’s biggest childhood cancer.

Eddie O’Gorman, founder of CHILDREN with LEUKAEMIA and close friend of Jeremy Beadle’s said:

"We are all devastated by this very sad news. Jeremy was not only a close personal friend and an extraordinary entertainer, he was one of the most dedicated supporters this charity has ever seen.

CHILDREN with LEUKEAMIA would not be the charity it is today without Jeremy Beadle. He will be sorely missed."
