In January 2021 George Melling was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND).
George, who played centre half for Blackpool FC, Morecambe, Altrincham, Leyland Town, Kendal, and his home team Coppull.
Nicci and George totally in love had to postpone their wedding day due to covid restrictions and time were of the essence as George had developed problems with his speech and his ability to walk had declined.
But the day finally came when they tied the knot with a handfasting wedding ceremony and celebrated their love surrounded with friends and family.
This video captured the love for George & Nicci created by Daniel Johnson Films.
You can see more around the friends and family who have been constantly fundraising and raising awareness of Motor Neurone Disease.
Several fundraising events included his now-wife Nicci Melling skydiving, the Yorkshire Three Peaks and a 140-mile coast to coast bike ride challenge.
