In memory of Louise Mayoh
We care for patients and their families to to support them during their illness


ELH is our chosen charity for my family and myself. It’s very close to our hearts as my beautiful sister Louise was looked after here during the last months of her life. I was extremely close to Louise - she was just 16 months older than me and we did everything together. Very sadly Louise lost her battle with cancer, and ever since my family and I have been raising money in different ways to support ELH. One of my favourite events was the great north run which I ran in a giant Prosecco bottle (our favourite tipple)! I wanted to do something even more challenging, so when I spotted that ELH wanted someone to represent them in the London Marathon I instantly entered. I’m a few weeks into a training plan which @PTHealthCoaching has tailored for me in case I got the place and loving every minute, I’ve always enjoyed running socially and to burn off a few beers, but never attempted a marathon before as I don’t feel I’ve had the time to dedicate to training with kids clubs, working etc, but now they children are a bit older and they are so excited and even want to join in the training!

The hospice are amazing and not only cared for Louise and our family during her time there but they offer aftercare too, it’s such a friendly place and everyone is so caring, happy and supportive.
