TWO brothers from Cheadle have signed up for Douglas Macmillan Hospice’s 5K Walk and Run on Sunday, April 6, to honour the memory of their mother Yvonne who was cared for by the Hospice.
Scott and Ben Jackson appreciated the support they received from the hospice in Blurton and the staff who looked after their mum in her last few hours.
Scott said that the hospice not only looked after his mum but gave the family support as well.
He added: “We are supporting the hospice in memory of our mum who sadly passed away at the hospice earlier this year.
“We’re doing the Family 5K Walk and Run with our family and friends and hope to also gain sponsors.”
Liz Clarke, Head of fund-raising for Douglas Macmillan Hospice said: “’The Family 5K Walk & Run is great event for the entire family through the beautiful scenic village of Barlaston, and promises to be a day to remember.
“All monies raised will enable us to continue to provide the highest level of care to local people facing a life-limiting illness.”
