view counter

 

Leek resident Wayne Lancaster has signed up for the Dougie Mac's first ever Fancy Drag Race, to honour the memory of his father in-law.

The 38 year old works at the Co-Operative Services office in Leek, will take part along with one friend from the Moorlands and another from Stoke on Trent.

"My wife is keen for me do this event – her father was cared for by the Hospice in 2005, and the end of life support he was given and the love and care shown, not only to him, but to all the family was fantastic," he said.

 "I am trying to get some other friends to take part so that we can raise a bit of money for what is an incredible local charity."

 The Fancy Drag Race is the Douglas Macmillan Hospice's first ever Men's only event, and will take place around Newcastle under Lyme town centre on Sunday May 27th; with the entrants all donning women's clothing for the run/walk.

 It is modelled on a similiar event by a fellow Hospice in Chesterfield for the past two years.

 Entry fee for the event is £15, sign up HERE.

 Zoe Hollingsworth, Senior Fundraising Development Manager said,

 "It's great to hear Wayne has signed up for the event, and we are hoping for a great response from all of our male supporters in North Staffordshire.

 "So lads get out your gladrags, lippy and trainers, and join us for a lotta laughs for a great cause."

 "The ladies can dress up their man, and send him our way for some fun -fundraising."
