Hartlepool Man’s Long Walk For Charity

Charitable Hartlepool man, Mally Day recently completed a walking challenge to raise funds for Alice House Hospice and Brain Tumour Research, in tribute to family members and friends.

In August, Mally walked a 50 mile route along and around the River Wear from Wearmouth
on the coast, up to Stanhope in the heart of Weardale, whilst raising £1457 in sponsorship to
be split between the two charities.

Mally also recently performed to a packed marquee under his alter-ego DJ Fake Charles at
the Hospice’s Hootenanny event at Hartlepool Rugby Club on August Bank Holiday.

Mally said, “The Hospice was crucial in the support of my Grandparents as they got older
and poorly. Help that my family and I appreciated so very much. They helped us in ways we
never expected. They were so kind and whenever I can offer any help I will.

“Brain tumour research is close to me as a very good friend and his family have been
affected and I would love to feel I’ve helped in some way. Thanks to everyone who sponsored me and helped to make a difference to these two wonderful causes.”

Janice Forbes, Community Fundraiser at Alice House said, “Thanks and congratulations to
Mally on this brilliant achievement and for all of his wonderful support – I hope that your feet
have recovered and that you are now enjoying a well-earned rest.”

Alice House Hospice provides care and support for patients and families affected by
incurable illness or the death of a loved one. Brain Tumour Research’s vision is to find a cure
for brain tumours.
