Oban Hospice Appeal 8


 

A Lismore man is determined to say thank you to the NHS in a very practical way. When 76 year old Anthony Lutyens was diagnosed with cancer of the pancreas he immediately decided he would walk part of the West Highland Way to raise funds for the Oban Hospice. Anthony has always been a great walker and a very fit man so it seemed to him the most natural way to say thank you to all the medical staff in the Oban Hospital, in the Port Appin Surgery and in Lismore for their fantastic continuing care. “They have been amazing at every stage of my diagnosis and treatment,” he said, “I cannot praise them highly enough.” Anthony is planning to walk from the Bridge of Orchy to Fort William: he was going to do the whole thing but because of the short days and possible bad weather he has been persuaded that doing part was the wiser course.

 

Anthony and his wife Cristall came to live in Lismore 15 years ago and he has been an active member of the artistic community ever since. He is a keen painter and has helped tutor the Lismore Art Group.

 

Anthony’s positive outlook is inspiring and he is hoping that this will catch people’s generous spirits so that such a great cause can benefit. Donations should be sent to Anthony Lutyens, Brynalen, Isle of Lismore, PA34 5UL.
