The Railway Club raises funds for St Ann’s in memory of former member

Railway Club Bike Ride

The Railway Club have again honoured the memory of one of their long-standing members Susan Heslop, from Stretford.

A bike ride from Chester to the club’s headquarters in Chester Road, Stretford, and fundraising evening, raised £4,800 for us St Ann’s.  We cared for Susan who died of cancer in September 2015, in our Heald Green hospice.

Members have so far donated more than £10,000 to us and there are plans for another cycling trip next spring and golf day.

Susan’s husband Tony, their sons Anthony, Martin and Luke and her brother-in-law Steve were among the 18-strong cycling group. Susan (59) was manageress at Fledglings Nursery in Stretford for many years.

Organiser Graham Wright, a club member since it opened 22 years ago, said: “Sue was a lovely special lady and the care she received as a patient at St Ann’s in Heald Green was second to none. We’d like to thank everyone for their donations and anyone who wants to join our bike ride next year is more than welcome.”
