Local fish and chip extraordinaire, Nigel Hodgson, had a very busy 2016 fundraising for the Great North Run. It was an absolute pleasure to meet with him this week and we can now announce that he has raised a fabulous £6,890.72!! This amount could fuel our Hospice at Home nurses’ vehicles to travel to all corners of our community (from Garstang right up to Ambleside) for over 2 months!
Nigel said “Supporting St John’s Hospice has been an honour. Whilst I love the challenges that fundraising brings, it’s been a huge team effort. The support and generosity from family and friends has been incredible. I must admit – I’m at my happiest when I know I’m helping to make a difference !”
Everyone at St John’s Hospice would like to extend their sincere gratitude to Nigel and everyone who helped and supported him.
