Event details

Dave Parry-Sargent remembrance page

On the 18th September David Parry-Sargent died in his sleep aged 32. Dave was someone who always wanted to help and support others. In 2012 he decided to run the Cheshire Oaks Chester Half Marathon to support the Northern Lights Charity. Not only did he complete the run, he did so dressed in a Santa suit, carrying collecting buckets, which raised a heavy £185. Dave so believed in the work of the charity, that we want to raise money in his memory to support their work. On 13th May 1987 the small boy who started the charity died, on the same day Dave was celebrating his second birthday.  The charity need to set a target for these pages so we have set one to match Dave’s £185 – but it is the thought that counts not the amount.

“Our special thanks go to David Parry-Sargent who really got into the theme of our charity by running in a Santa outfit and collecting £185 in a bucket as he ran the half marathon distance, but we cannot thank everyone enough for helping us raise money in this our 25th Anniversary year.”

The picture of Dave and the words above were taken from a report in the press about the run.
