I am raising funds for the Dorchester Festival which supports Dorchester Abbey and Sue Ryder by abseiling the 100ft tall Abbey tower.
I last abseiled on a school trip to Snowdonia in about 1981. I am not keen on heights.
Thank you for your support!
Here are some examples of what Sue Ryder could do with your donation:
£5 could provide a memory box for a bereaved child. They can store sentimental trinkets inside to help them cope with their loss.
£12 could pay for four hand-held fans so patients can self-manage breathlessness caused by some cancer treatments.
£18 is the average value of a bag of donated items sold in our shops.
£23 could pay for an hour of befriending. Befrienders are there to talk, listen or simply sit beside someone who is feeling lonely.
£40 could buy a TENS machine, a non-drug treatment to help patients control pain.
£50 could pay for an advice session for families. Our family support teams offer advice on everything from financial worries to future care.
£100 could pay for a visit from our clinical nurse specialists. They work closely with families, GPs and community teams to ensure patients receive expert care personalised to their needs.
£150 could ensure a Hospice at Home nurse has a mobile working bag with all the kit they need to care for someone out in the community.
£500 could pay for a bed for a day of inpatient care for a hospice patient.
£2,500 could buy a pressure-relieving mattress to ensure patients are as comfortable as possible when movement is limited.
