A 24-year-old man from Harrogate who had been battling a rare form of bone cancer has sadly passed away.

James Hindmarsh was diagnosed with Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS) last year and, after enduring numerous types of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, had been told that private medical treatment is his only chance of survival.

James’ friends and colleagues were able to raise more than £60,000 as part of a fundraising campaign for the treatment, however James died before the treatment could begin.

They will be continuing their fundraising challenges in his memory.
