The Appeal is centred around Charlie Crowe, as the last surviving member of the Newcastle United triple FA cup winning team of the 1950's.
After retiring from football he worked for various charitable causes. Unfortunately for the last ten years of his life he suffered from Alzheimer's disease and sadly died in February 2010.
Charlie's wish was to support the work of Newcastle MR Centre and see the second scanner installed. Charlie started another of his famous determined runs. However, the goal this time was to raise £0.5 million to help fund a new scanner for vital research. Although it came too late to help him, the research will benefit the lives of hundreds of others and the lives of future generations.
We shall press on to achieve the fundraising goal. Charlie was an outstanding sportsman and deserves an outstanding memory.
