Cllr Clarence Set to Run London 10k for St Francis Hospice

Cllr Barrett at the 2016 London 10k

Local Cranham Councillor, Clarence Barrett, is set to take on the London 10,000 metres on July 9th to raise funds for St Francis Hospice.

Cllr Barrett said: “I have seen how the Hospice care not only for those with life-limiting conditions, but also for the families and carers of loved ones. When the need is most, and times are tough, the service provided by St Francis Hospice is an invaluable asset to the community. It is inspiring to see how dedicated personal care, compassion and love are such motivating qualities that embrace the whole philosophy of the Hospice.

“The Hospice needs £7.7m a year to run, and while the NHS provide some £2.3m, the remaining £5.4m is down to fundraising, gifts, legacies and the generosity of people to undertake their own personal challenges to support a great cause – and that’s why I want to do my bit!

“10k isn’t quite a marathon, but if I can raise as much money as possible for the Hospice it will be worth every step of the way.”

Clarence is aiming to raise £450 for the Hospice.
