We offer expert care, guidance and support to people living with a terminal illness


Sandra Richardson died at a Marie Curie Liverpool on Wed 25th August 2021. Sandra lived with Stage 4 breast cancer for 3 years and wanted to raise funds for Marie Curie Hospice in Liverpool who looked after her so profoundly. After spending her life working tirelessly in communities in Liverpool Sandra and her wife Clare wanted to help the doctors, nurses, all staff and patients where she is being cared for in Marie Curie.  The funds will partly go to building a rest and renew space for staff working 12 hour shifts. This fundraising is in Sandras memory. We loved her deeply. 


Hundreds of people have joined in recording videos and voice recordings including Jon Snow from Channel 4 News, Actress Leanne Best, Poets including John Cooper Clarke and Benjamin Zephaniah, Everton Football Club and many more ….also Sans mum and neighbours !

We are also inspired by how people who had never read poetry before and in public have stepped up and recorded themselves reading - incredible !!! Enjoy and consider recording a poem yourself on social media and link with this and attach the link to this page

Sandra would have loved to see you reading her poetry, so if you can record a short video of yourself reciting one her short poems and send it to us. Alternatively share it on social media and tag with #sanricho

Record yourself reading a poem and then post it on our Facebook page

Or you can email it to
