On 19/1/2020 Matt will be running in the Alderley Park 5 mile trail race.

Matt first competed in this race back on 18/7/19, finishing 18th out of 532 in a time of 31:49. He says “This time around, my goal in this race is to raise money for HaTS by beating that time and placing. This is the first fundraiser in over 2 years, so it’s about time more money was raised for this fantastic ward and charity and to add to the £12,000 we’ve raised since in the 7 years since Mum’s passing. “

We can’t believe that it’s 7 years since Carol Russell passed and we wish Matt all the best in his race. Any amount counts, so please, donate if you can.  Matt’s fundraising page is at:

Graham McCusker cycled the ‘North Coast 500’ cycle route around northern Scotland to fundraise for HaTS. Together with his 3 friends, Declan, Joe and James, Between 31st August - 6th September Graham and friends  battled extreme weather to raise £2476, Smashing their £2000 target.  

If you are wondering why, it’s because Graham has directly  benefited from what HaTS does. On 4th February 2016, Graham was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukaemia (APML) and has had treatment on both the PTW and HTDU department.  

Now recovered, Graham said “The volunteers from HaTS really made my time in isolation on the Ward more bearable, so I’m doing what I can to give back.”  You will be able to meet Graham at the 2019 Reunion.
