welcome to the Lisini Pub Co Ltd
Celtic legend Harry Hood made his name battling it out on the football field – but faced his toughest fight when he was diagnosed with cancer.
He was diagnosed with bowel cancer two years ago and thanks to the support he received from The Beatson in Glasgow, Harry, now cancer free is helping the Beatson Cancer Charity by backing an appeal launched by the Lanarkshire business community to raise £500,000 for Beatson’s new radiotherapy centre at Monklands hospital in Airdrie.
After Harry retired from football, he founded the Lisini Pub Company with Kathleen and lives in Lanarkshire. His brush with cancer inspired him to help out The Beatson and his company aim is to raise at least £50,000.
He wants to ensure the Lanarkshire Beatson Business Community Appeal gets a place in the spotlight. He said: “Having been a patient of the Beatson, I have seen first-hand the incredible work they do and the invaluable support the charity gives to patients and their families.”
He is also planning a big football fundraiser fun day next June between former Celtic and Rangers players at Airdrie’s Excelsior Stadium to raise cash for the Beatson Cancer Charity and the hospice.
Any support, private business or individual to help support the much needed facility in Lanarkshire is appreciated.
