Local Alnwick man, Barry Grieveson, raised £353 for HospiceCare after completing the Wooler Wheel Cycle Challenge, which was held on Saturday 7th October 2017.
On presenting his cheque to HospiceCare Barry said “Having experienced Cancer earlier this year and recovered, it makes you think of all the people who are less fortunate to have care and support around them to help them through life-limiting illnesses. My wife Julia, who volunteers at HospiceCare, and I were reassured to know that the nurses were there for us both if needed.”
HospiceCare needs to raise over £525,000 this year and will only receive 7.5% funding from the NHS the rest has to be generated by fundraising and receiving donations. The money that Barry has donated will support the delivery of 14 hours of Hospice at Home services.
