An actor and musician from Stockport has raised over £20,000 for the hospice that looked after his dad.

Greg Kelly has been fundraising for St Ann’s Hospice in Heald Green, Stockport where his dad was cared for before he died five years ago and is now their official Community Fundraiser.

St Ann’s celebrates its 50th birthday this year and Kelly ran the Manchester Marathon in October as well as playing a song everyday in a month and uploading it to Twitter to raise money in honour of their anniversary.

Kelly has recently hit his goal £20,000 but he wants to do even more activities, including running 50k at the beginning of next year.
