£25raised of £5,000 target by 2 supporters

    Weʼve raised £25 to help fund and maintain care / respite facilities at the hospice that cared for my grandfather.

    Funded on Friday, 19th October 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Like many families, we have endured the heartbreak of losing a loved one through cancer - my grandfather. Throughout his treatment, he remained his usual funny, quirky self and as a family, we had to be sure he was comfortable and happy.

    The time came when the treatment wasn’t working anymore and he realised that his time had come. Reluctantly, after a four year battle, he went into Halton Haven Hospice for palliative care on April 7th - losing his battle with the cancer that had comsumed him (and all of us as a family) on April 14th.

    The reason I want to help this hospice so much is that because all the time that my granddad was in there, the Doctors, nurses and healthcare assistants became like our second family - even the auxilliary staff did a fantastic job and the care he received was like no other care I’ve experienced. The compassion and empathy these people show is something I can’t really explain and they certainly don’t get the praise they deserve.

    We‘re not aiming to raise hundreds of thousands (although that would be amazing) just a healthy amount to contribute to help them build and maintain their care/respite facilities. I’ve also decided that if I reach my goal, to donate my hair to Cancer Research UK. This has been a massive but easy decision for me to make.

    Even if you don‘t donate to our cause, please share my page...

    Thank you for reading xx

      Good luck. Do squats to strengthen your knees. Drink plenty of water.
