HOSPITAL FUNDRAISER: Cancer survivor holds another charity event for Northwood hospital scanner centre

A cancer survivor who has beaten the killer disease twice and raised nearly £5,000 for the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre is holding another charity event next month.

Tino Alcorano is happily now in remission though he does have to go back for regular check-ups.

He has used his experience since he was first diagnosed in 2010 to raise thousands for Mount Vernon Hospital and the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre and even ran the London Marathon while he was receiving treatment.

Tino commented: “I have lost a lot of good friends and family to cancer. Mount Vernon and the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre don’t get enough money from the government as it is. Machines at the Paul Strickland Scanner Centre are funded by donations. This annoyed me as if it wasn’t for them then I wouldn’t have known.

“Whatever money I raise doesn’t matter because I know it will go 100 per cent to charity.”

His latest fundraiser, A Night of Old Skool Garage Classics, at Faborje in Watford is being held on October 26 and will feature superstar DJ Brandon Block who is giving his time for free to come and play at the event.

Tickets will be available on the door and Tino said he’s looking forward to the event.

He said: “Every little helps as someone once said. So many people in my life have been affected by this terrible disease and I want to do whatever I can to help.

“Thank you to everyone at Faborje for supporting us, to the DJs for giving up their time for nothing and of course to the punters.”
