AN EAST Lancs charity champ who lost his wife to cancer is raising money for his local hospice.

Gareth Mayoh set up a fundraiser via facebook to raise £150.

Gareth and his two young sons Jack and Tom have been raising money for East Lancashire Hospice since 2018 where wife and mother, Louise Mayoh spent her final days.

Gareth said: “This year I’ve decided to donate all of my birthday money kindly given to me by family and friends to the wonderful East Lancashire Hospice. As you all know the hospice is very dear to my heart and I will never be able to thank them enough for everything they did for Louise and continue to do for our family.”
