I will be running by first Half Marathon at Hull on Sunday 16 August.
Recently my good friend John Mitchell passed away after a very short illness. During his last day he was admitted into the Hospice, where him and his family were taken care of. I was so touched by the impact the Hospice made on the family that I would like to raise some money to say thank you and hopefully help other people in their situation. John was an absolutely pleasure to be around and helped no end of charities in Goole, always large as life with the biggest smile on his face and wearing the brightest of waist coats. He helped me a lot with fundraising for Goole Amateur Operatic & Dramatic Society. In the 3 years that he was involved he held 25 bucket collections at Morrisons, 2 bike rides, a tombola stall and also donated money in lieu of presents at his and Celia's Golden Wedding, raising a whopping £5,000. He will be sadly missed by so many people, our Front of House show week will never quite be the same.
