DONATIONS MADE IN MEMORY OF GARY SPEED
Ahead of Gary Speed’s private funeral service on Friday, Louise Speed has asked for any donations made in his memory to come to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation or the John Hartson Foundation – two cancer charities which Gary strongly supported.
Last year Gary took on a new challenge and raised over £7,500 for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation by running the London Marathon. He also attended the Foundation’s golf day in April at Rockliffe Hall, Darlington.
Lady Elsie Robson commented: “I’m extremely touched by the request for donations in Gary’s memory to come to the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation or John Hartson Foundation.
“To be thinking about other people like that at such a difficult time is incredible and I understand Louise believes it’s what Gary would have wanted.
“I’m very grateful and my thoughts will very much be with Gary’s family and friends on Friday.”
