A charity worker has been putting herself through a gruelling training plan in readiness for the London Marathon on Sunday. Roisin Dobbin-Stacey is the PET/CT1 Manager at the busy Cobalt Imaging Centre in Cheltenham for local medical charity Cobalt. She will be raising money to help patients living with dementia.
Roisin’s own personal experience of how devastating this disease can be along with the dementia research work her department is involved in, was the inspiration she needed to run the marathon and raise money for Cobalt.
We are are currently working with the 2gether NHS Foundation Trust to find scans for patients with possible young onset dementia.
This week Roisin collected two running tops kindly branded by Rosalind Bodman, local seamstress and Manager of ‘Dream Seams’, a t-shirt printing and embroidery specialist, based on High Street, Cheltenham.
Roisin Dobbin-Stacey said “I’m absolutely thrilled that Rosalind donated her time and materials for free to brand the tops with my race number and name. Work gets busier, family life carries on and I have put a huge amount of pressure on myself to do this so every bit of support I’ve received has made it worthwhile”.
