Club member Greg Ullyart will be running the London Marathon on Sunday 23rd April.
It’s his first marathon and he’s doing it in memory of his friend Lewis, who sadly passed away from a rare form of brain cancer in 2021.
In his honour, I will be running to raise money for St. Joseph’s Hospice in Hackney, where Lewis stayed for several periods over the last few years of his life.
The team at St. Joseph’s were most welcoming and warm in their care, and the Hospice facilitated Lewis, his family and friends being able to share some cherished moments during this time, including his wedding day in December 2019. I am proud to be running in Lewis’ memory and raising funds for them to continue their vital work.
I am hoping to raise £2,000 for the Hospice so please donate generously, if you are able to do so.
St. Joseph’s Hospice:
St Joseph’s Hospice opened in Hackney in 1905, and since then has been caring for and supporting people affected by serious illness in eight London boroughs.
We work to improve the quality of life of more than 2,100 patients with life-limiting conditions each year, helping them live life to the full, to the very last.
We have to raise £16,000 each day to keep our vital services running and available to the 2.2 million people in our diverse community, so every penny raised for our hospice is really important, and very much appreciated.
