Rotherham United Assistant Manager, John Breckin has orgainsed a midnight walk in aid of the Hospice and it is on course to raise £50,000.

John helped to organise the walk as a ‘thank you’ to the hospice who cared for his wife before she lost her battle against breast cancer.

John has the support of people like The Chuckle Brothers, Tony Christie, Peter Elliot, The Rotherham Titans, South Yorkshire Police and Fire and Rescue Services for the five or ten mile walk.

The walk starts at Millmoor and John told The Advertiser, ‘it could be the last public event to be held at Millmoor and we are hoping to make it a fitting farewell.’

Stephen Brogan, who broke his leg earlier this year against MK Dons, will be taking part and Breck said of him, ‘he’s a local lad and has worked really hard. He’s always eager to do things within the community.’

Gill Shaw, the hospice fund raising manager said, ‘We have been really impressed with the level of support we’ve had.’
