Anthony Austin is running the #GreatNorthRun2017 to raise funds to purchase new TVs for our in-patient rooms. He is running in memory of his much loved and missed father-in-law, Norman Wilson.
Norman was diagnosed with liver cancer in early December 2015 his illness progressed rapidly and on New Years Eve he was admitted to St Cuthbert’s Hospice.
He spent four days at St Cuthbert’s Hospice before he sadly passed away surrounded by his family.
Since Norman’s passing family and friends have been fundraising for St Cuthbert’s and raised enough to pay for a day of care in honour of Norman’s 75th birthday in March 2017.
They have now set their sights on raising enough money to purchase new 24″ TV/DVD systems for all of the in-patient rooms.
Anthony said: “When this need arose at the hospice we knew we had to fundraise for this; anyone lucky enough to know Norman knew how much he loved technology, movies and TV shows. It felt like the perfect way to honour him.
If you can spare even a couple of pounds to help us achieve our goal and to see me struggling across the finish line at this year’s Great North Run, we’d all be extremely grateful.”
