Hannah George Manchester Half Marathon - East Cheshire Hospice

Hannah George Manchester Half Marathon

Nurse Hannah George and her mum Clair will attempt to run further than they have done before in the Manchester half marathon on Sunday, October 10.  The pair train together regularly and will be put through their paces raising funds for East Cheshire Hospice where Hannah works on the inpatient unit.

Clair and Hannah George

Hannah, from Macclesfield, said: “We’ve only run 10ks so this will be quite a challenge for us. Mum  says I’m always a little bit ahead of her so that spurs her on and I’m sure we’ll encourage each other.”

Clair has worked at John Lewis & Partners at Cheadle for more than 20 years, while Hannah is involved in front-line care at the Hospice.

Hannah said: “I love working there and obviously the job has ups and downs. There are good days and bad days, depending on what the situation is in the Hospice with patients.

“People might think it’s a sad place, but actually it’s a lovely environment  with a family atmosphere.

“We want to raise funds for the Hospice, especially as things have been difficult there with Covid so it’s good to give something back.

“We also want to get the word out there and get people back to doing fundraising activities for the Hospice.”

They will run in memory of Hannah’s grandmother Gillian Riley (82) who died early last year and was cared for by the Hospice @Home team.

Hannah and Clair have already raised more than £500 and to sponsor them visit gofund.me/2f77c634.
