HC-One raises over £13,000 for Brain Tumour ResearchHC-One’s support office in Darlington has raised an incredible £13,177.25 in aid of the Brain Tumour Research charity, in memory of a staff member’s partner.
Tracy Hardy who works at the support office in Southgate House as a Careline Team Leader, lost her partner of over 15 years, David Watson, to a brain tumour on the 8th July 2022. Her team decided to rally round and raise funds in his memory.
The team have been participating in a number of fundraising activities and events to raise money for Brain Tumour Research.
Fundraising activities and events have taken place from June to July which have included:
  • Wear a Hat Day, which involved Tracy’s colleagues in the Careline team baking cakes, scones and preparing cooked hot dogs to sell. The support office also held a raffle and various games, which residents from HC-One’s Beaconsfield Court care home in Barnard Castle also came along to take part in.
  • The Careline team, as well as Tracy’s friends and family took part in a sponsored climb of Roseberry Topping.
  • Tracy’s daughter also completed the muddy run in Newcastle and raised money for the cause.
The Brain Tumour Research charity aims to find a cure for all types of brain tumours and to increase the UK investment in brain tumour research.
Tracy Hardy, Careline Team Leader at HC-One, commented:
“I’d like to say a massive thank you to my team for their support, efforts and contributions towards raising funds for the Brain Tumour Research charity.
“I am extremely proud and humbled that we have raised over £13,000 for a cause, incredibly close to my heart which will go towards research and finding a cure for brain tumours.”
