Neil Tucker has very kindly offered to raise funds for the Steve Prescott Foundation (SPF) and Macmillan Cancer Support at a Coffee morning to be held on 23rd September in the Red V cafe bar, Langtree Park, St Helens from 10am to 1pm.
Neil is 37 years old and 5 years ago was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s lymphoma. After five lots of treatment he was put in remission. Neil says, ‘The thing that kept me going was my odd conversation with Stevie. He always asked how I was and what stage of chemotherapy I was up to. He was the most considerate man I know. Then 6 months ago my cancer comeback, which thankfully now is in remission. I'm sure Stevie was looking over me saying ‘Fight it, I did you can.’ I've just done my first brave thing, the shave for MacMillan which involved shaving my hair, eyebrows and my beard clean off which raised £85. Stevie is my idol and will always be ’
Neil is organising the sale of homemade cakes and biscuits and hot and cold beverages. There will also be a tombola, prize raffles and lucky dips for the young children.
The proceeds from the coffee morning will be shared between the two charities.
The SPF wants to thank Neil for his kind and generous gesture to raise funds for his chosen charities and wishes Neil good luck with his coffee morning and hope it is a huge success. Please support Neil on the 23rd September.
