A Bamber Bridge man has completed the Manchester 10k in honour of his beloved grandad.
Mesut Sexton, a Capita Call Centre team manager, completed the gruelling run to support St Catherine’s Hospice.
Mesut said: “My grandad, John Sexton, was cared for in the hospice in 2015 following his diagnosis of metastatic colon cancer.
“The care and support he received when he was in the hospice was incredible, it really made a difference. He had dignity when he was at St Catherine’s – it gave the whole family peace of mind.”
The last few months of training went really well for Mesut, with regular gym sessions with friends and road running.
He added: “The atmosphere on the day was incredible, everyone was really supportive cheering everyone on.”
St Catherine’s fundraising officer, Hayley Jackson, said: “We’re extremely grateful to Mesut for supporting the hospice and raising £380. With the support from people like Mesut, in the community, it enables us to continue providing specialist, personalised and compassionate care to local people when it matters most.”
