A family from Sidcup have organised a fun run in memory of their son and brother who lost his battle with cancer aged 13.

Terry Goodwin, aged 43, of Dorchester Avenue, and his wife Michelle set up the Aiden Goodwin Foundation after losing their eldest son Aiden to cancer in November last year.

Aiden was diagnosed with a rare tumour in his left kidney in January 2012 and despite nearly two years of chemotherapy was unable to fight the disease.

Mr Goodwin said: "We are so proud of our amazing son, and felt as a family we wanted to continue Aiden’s name in some way, as well as helping other families going through a similar trauma, therefore The Aiden Goodwin Foundation was created."

The aim of the foundation is to purchase a caravan on the south coast to provide respite for children with cancer and their families.

On September 13 at 1pm a five kilometre fun run will take place in Danson Park to raise funds for the cause.
