Hospice says ‘thank you’ to half marathon fundraisers

East Cheshire Hospice has given its thanks to more than 50 competitors who ran on its behalf in the Wilmslow half marathon.

Amy Willis, the charity’s fundraising manager, said: “We’d like to thank all the athletes who raised money for us and the race organisers who chose East Cheshire Hospice as their nominated charity for 2013.

“We’re also grateful to Sport–Med and university students from Bolton and Salford who provided sports massages in return for a £5 donation and this gesture alone raised more than £600.”
