ASHTON COACH completes the BUPA 10K Manchester Run to raise money for The Christie and Bolton Hospice, 20th May 2012

By David Hills-Taylor, 21st May 2012

I finished the course in 63 minutes and 17 seconds, several minutes slower than my time last year!

That time put me in 18,710th position overall, out of 40,000.

My excuse is that I had a cold and chest infection, so I was just really pleased to finish the course at all!!

We have so far raised over £500 (plus gift aid tax) for The Christie and Bolton Hospice, two very worthy causes who only get part of their funding from the NHS.

I was very impressed with the standard of care that Steven, my Son, received at The Christie and at Bolton Hospice. The staff and volunteers were very professional, caring and have a very difficult job to do.

A Big thank you to everyone who has already sponsored me this year and if you would like to sponsor me now the link to my Just Giving page is

It would be great if you could make a donation to help to keep these excellent services available to other people who may need them in the future.

Thanks very much for your help and have a good summer.

Best regards,
Dave Haworth
