Triple Header in Memory of Chris Chris Allinson – a well liked and respected sportsman from Guisborough tragically passed away in November of last year due to ‘Sudden Unexpected Death from Epilepsy’.

He was loved by many and there has been no shortage of fundraising held in his memory. Most notably his younger brother Dan Allinson, who along with his friend are completing the Great North run in aid of Epilepsy Research UK; and between them have raised so far in excess of £2000.

Dan’s hope is “to help raise as much money as possible to support life changing research in the field of epilepsy, so that hopefully one day others don’t have to go through what my family has been through these past few months.”

In addition, Northern Shakers, a local mobile cocktail bar and events company, hosted a night of cocktails and fundraising activities on Saturday which raised £700 for the charity. The owners – Ben Bedlington and Charlie Templeman said, “As a close friend of the Allinson family, and seeing the effort that Dan and James have put into raising money for Epilepsy Research UK, we are really pleased to be able to help a great cause which is so close to home.”
