George Cockburn and Seamus McGinley

George and Seamus raised just under £3,000 for the Leukaemia Unit (ward 41) at Leicester Royal Infirmary in memory of George's late wife, Jayne Cockburn. Jayne had commenced proceedings to raise funds for ward 41 but sadly passed away in October 2015 before she could bring her plans to fruition. Seamus and George started working with Global Taekwondo International and their own club Excalibur Martial Arts to organise a number of fundraising events to raise the money.

Their generous donation funded a specialist wheelchair and various pieces of rehabilitation equipment to help patients with their recovery whilst being treated on ward 41. These gifts have made a huge difference to our patients.
