Family of a Partington man who died in a crash last year to run the Manchester 10K raising money for Salford Royal Hospital


We will never forget Christmas day last year it was supposed to be a day of cheer and happiness sadly all that turned into worry and sadness, we was on the scene fairly quickly that day, we saw Cole Porter from a distance being helped by so many of our fantastic emergency services.

Cole Porter sadly died the next day from his injuries after crashing his motorbike into a car at the corner of Moss Lane and Hardwick Road in Partington.

All emergency services were in attendance including the Air Ambulance service who landed on land next to the doctors.

The family wanted to show some appreciation to hospital staff  who not only looked after Cole but also themselves during what was an incredibly difficult time.

A family spokesperson said: “The dedication and commitment the staff showed that day was nothing short of amazing and the support we received as a family through such a hard time was overwhelming.They never stopped fighting for our Cole, and we want to do as much as we can to show them our appreciation.”

Cole’s family and friends could not thank emergency services and staff at Salford Royal Hospital enough and so have decided to do this run to raise money in support of what they do.

The amount has almost reached £8,600 and expect this will climb much higher as the 10K run approaches.

We wish the family and close friends of Cole all the best in the run and to let them know we fully support them.
