Thousands of pounds have so far been raised for charity in memory of a loving father.

Family and friends of Brian Moule have come together to so far raise more than £4,200 for Maggie’s Centre in Newcastle.

The fund-raising campaign was started by his daughter Emma, of North Shields, to thank the charity after Brian lost his battle with cancer last May.

A ‘Cake & Cuppa Afternoon’ raised more than £2,300 while Emma and her friends took part in a 23-mile challenge by hitting the four peaks in the Cheviots.

And later in the year, five members of #TeamMoule are planning to take part in the Great North Run.

Emma said: “I created #TeamMoule last year when we were first introduced to Maggie’s Newcastle upon my Dad’s heartbreaking diagnosis.

“Sadly three weeks before last year’s Hike my Dad lost his fight with cancer, however we decided to still do the hike in his memory and raised just under £5,000.

“Maggie’s is a fantastic resource that I feel we are very fortunate to have in the North East.

“Fund-raising is the lifeblood of Maggie’s. Every penny I raise, will go direct to the centre to help continue their work.”
