Golf club manager Duncan completes the Great West Run in memory of his dad
An East Devon man who completed the Great West Run in memory of his father has raised £3,306 for an end-of-life nursing team.
Last week Duncan Driver, the manager of Lyme Regis Golf Club, presented a cheque to Seaton and District Hospital League of Friends.
He raised the money to thank them for the kindness and support shown to him and his family by the nurses of the Seaton Friends Hospiscare@Home which they fund.
He said: “I started training eight months before the race as at the time I couldn’t even run a kilometre!
“I wanted to do something in memory of my dad and as the Seaton Friends Hospiscare@Home nurses are amazing I decided to raise money for the service through sponsorship.
“The nurses showed my dad and mum the greatest of respect, compassion and dignity throughout dad’s illness, even allowing him to pass away in his own home.”
Lyme Regis Golf Club will be raising further funds for the Seaton Friends Hospiscare@Home when it holds the inaugural Driver Cup - a charity golf day.
