It is with great sadness and a large degree of personal grief that I must share the tragic news that Brownhills lad, Walsall Council Parks guy and top fundraiser Gareth Perrins-Seedhouse yesterday passed away following a tenacious and long fight with cancer.
I appealed for donations on behalf of Gareth Perrins-Seedhouse back in 2012, when, despite his ongoing and grave illness, he ran Shenstone Fun Run, raising a huge total of £7,355.40 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Gareth’s story and incredible fortitude touched many, many hearts – amongst his friends, workmates and you blog readers who gave so very generously.
Gareth was a great father and top bloke too, and always dealt with my enquiries in a that friendly, open-hearted manner he will always be known and remembered for.
On behalf of myself, and readers of the blog – many who knew Gareth personally – I’d like to offer our sincerest condolences to Gareth’s wife, Nina, and their children, and of course to all his family and friends.
