Glenn Main raises over £11,000 for Dove Cottage Day Hospice by completing the Great North Run.
Glenn, from Waltham in the Vale of Belvoir, raised over £14,000 for two charities when taking part in the Great North Run. Glenn (61) ran for local charity, Dove Cottage Day Hospice and also Help for Heroes. He has a strong connection with Dove Cottage Day Hospice as his wife, Ann, is a Dove Cottage guest.
Glenn spent months training and hoped to raise about £1,000 each for each charity. With the help of Major Simon-Weber Brown, who acted as fundraising co-ordinator, they were able to present us with a cheque for £11,683. Glenn ran the the course in 2 hours 37 minutes and raised £000’s in the process.
Mr Main and Major Weber-Brown recently visited the hospice to present a cheque to Dove Cottage manager, Chris Gatfield.
We’re absolutely delighted and would like to thank them for this amazing donation which will make a huge difference to our patients.
