Memorial race night's on to a winner for hospice
A charity race night in memory of Clarendon College pupil Connor Robinson smashed its target on Friday.
Around 80 people attended the event, held in the function room of The Farmhouse, in Southwick, which raised £1,372 for Children’s Hospice South West.
Connor, 12, had a rare skin cancer in his mouth and was cared for by Charlton Farm, in Bristol, before his death in January 2011.
The fundraiser was organised by Connor’s aunt Carlene Robinson, 24, of Trowbridge.
She said: “We smashed our fundraising target of £500. I’m just glad we got to do something for the hospice as they were so good to us.”
Miss Robinson is in training for the Bath Half Marathon, which takes place on March 3, and hopes to raise even more money for the charity.
Following Connor’s death, a plaque was erected at Clarendon College in his memory.
