Derek and George being presented with a cheque for £3380
Our Hartlepool committee has received a generous donation of £3380 in memory of Kathy Brown.
George Newbury and Derek Redman were presented with a cheque on Saturday August 31 at the Catholic Social Club in Hartlepool.
Kathy Brown, who was planning to marry partner Mark Corbett in October this year, died of lung cancer aged only 49 on 17 August. Incredibly Kathy organised several fundraising events to be held after her death, as a way of thanking the Macmillan nurses who had helped and supported her and her family. Over 300 tickets were sold for Saturday's party night in memory of Kathy.
Lindsay Kay, Fundraising manager for Tees Valley would like to thank Mark and Kathy’s family and everyone involved in raising such a terrific amount in her memory. The funds raised will make a big difference to local people affected by cancer.
If you would like to organise your own event or fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Support, please call 0300 1000 200 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
