January 2020

A huge congratulations to Greig Futcher for being named Charity Fundraiser of the Year at the Spire FM Local Hero Awards held last Friday.

Spire FM wrote about Greig's award:

Greig Futcher hosts events which have raised over £45,000 for the Salisbury Hospice charity over the last six years.

After his wife passed away in 2013, Greig became determined to raise money for the hospice after seeing the incredible care Lyn received while there.

The event, which includes a beer and music festival along with a football tournament at Salisbury Rugby Club has proved to be incredibly popular, last year it raised an impressive £14,000.

Greig was nominated by his 11-year old son Freddie.

Here are his words scribed by his Nan.

 

Last year's Fabulous Family Fun Day was, once more, a huge success.
Held at Salisbury Rugby Club raising over an amazing £14,000!

Greig is supported in organising this mammoth event by a team of wonderful committee members including Spencer, Sarah, Sam, Nick, Finbarr, Claire and his other two sons Thomas and Henry.

We caught up with Greig and found out more about the award and what it means to him and his family:
