Ex-Celtic and Wales international footballer John Hartson, visited Beatson Cancer Charity Wellbeing Centre.
Through his foundation, John donated an incredible £20,000 to the charity and came to present the cheque in person on Monday 18th February.
At our offices, he took part in interviews with sports journalists and carried out a live Sky News interview, talking about why he was visiting the charity and also football.
He then went over to our Wellbeing Centre, where our Patient & Family Support Manager Claire Bradley gave him a tour of our centre's services. Following that he took part in a Q&A session with Beatson patients in the centre lounge where they enjoyed hearing John's life experiences along with him taking photos and giving autographs.
He also met with interim Chief Executive Alison McGregor and Board Member Alan Kilpatrick, who thanked him on behalf of the charity for his donation.
Beatson Charity look forward to welcoming John back in the future.
An absolute privilege to support the wonderful work that @Beatson_Charity do by supporting people living with cancer and their families. Thank you for the warm welcome today.
And thanks so much to you all for your support – it makes days like today possible. #HartsonHeroes https://t.co/jMLdZjaBju
