A Night for Patrick
Following the death of her father, Patrick Cullen, in November 2015, Annette Rollinson decided she wanted to raise money for Rotherham Hospice. Patrick was cared for by the Hospice, following a diagnosis of lung cancer in September2015. Annette gathered her family and friends and they entered a team in the Santa Dash event. They raised a whopping £1554.96.
Annette says “We couldn’t have wished for a better end to our Dad’s life. The love and care he received in Rotherham Hospice was fantastic. It’s a great place, not just for the patient, but for the family members too. We are very proud of the amount we raised, and we know Dad would have been proud too.”
Annette hasn’t stopped there either. With the help of her daughter, Nicola, she is planning a fundraising night at East Dene Club on 25th March – A Night for Patrick. As Patrick was a long standing member of East Dene Club, the committee agreed that they would pay for the Dublin Raiders to perform at the event. Annette has also secured some great raffle prizes, and there will be an auction and bingo on the night.
Annette adds “Dad was a true gentleman and loved by many people. He was my world, and raising money for the Hospice helps me to cope with the sad loss of our hero.”
Tickets for the charity night, priced at just £1, are available from the club, or text/call 07961 539779.
