On April 27th, Willow Burn Hospice, Lanchester, welcomed representatives from the Computing and Technology Society (NUCATS) to thank them for the recent 24 hour Gameathon event which raised over £3,700 for the hospice. Danwen Huang, Harry Large and Eva Theodoridou, along with staff member John Colquhoun were shown around the hospice by Community Fundraiser Jacqueline Pigford who explained how the money raised would be used to help patients. Willow Burn Trustee Paul Jackson presented NUCATS with a certificate whilst Harry also received a trophy for contributing the largest amount of money raised by an individual during the Gameathon. Harry commented "Having seen the amazing work that Willow Burn Hospice does with the limited funds they receive has really made me happy to have been able to raise the money I did for them. I hope that all the money we raised from the event will be able to go a long way there and help to continue the staff at Willow Burn to be able to do what they do best which I believe is bringing smiles and lots of amazing support for the local community. When we got told that they don't have the funds to be able to help everyone almost brought a tear to me and I want to continue to try to raise as much money as I can for Willow Burn, so that they can continue to do the amazing work they are and give the patients the care they deserve!"
