A director at Dacre,Son & Hartley has raised more than £350 in memory of his late father, by completing the Great North Run.
Steven Potts, who heads the firm’s Bingley office, completed the gruelling 13.1 mile run in just over two hours. The money is being donated to the Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope, the hospice that cared for Steven’s father who died in 2012 of Mesothelioma – a Cancer linked to exposure to asbestos.
Steven says, “It’s a charity that’s very close to my heart. I have completed the Great North Road four times now raising over £3,000 in total for the hospice. Despite the fact my knees hurt these days, it was a really enjoyable day. There was a great atmosphere and I ran with friend who were raising money for the British Heart Foundation.”
“The hospice needs to raise £9,000 every day to stay open, so I have always been keen to help them, especially after my father received such great care.”
