We provide specialist care to patients with a life-limiting illness


Daniel Wheeldon will sit on every one of the 10,600 seats in the ground in a fundraising stunt inspired by the efforts of former footballers Alan Shearer and Robbie Savage at Wembley during 2014’s Sport Relief.


Daniel, who works at Gilder Mitsubishi in Tapton Lock, is calling on anyone else who would like to join him on August 5th to get in touch and help raise funds. He has enlisted the help of personal trainer Nic Crossley, who is offering free sessions for anyone who signs up to take part.

 The father-of-two, who turns 40 on June 18th, said: ‘Part of the reason for doing this is that I’m approaching 40 and this is encouraging me to get fit. I’m out of shape and I need to do something about it.

 ‘I’m apprehensive about it because I think it’s going to be hard and I have booked time off after it because I’ll be in a bit of a state. But I’m a lifelong supporter of the charity and I will do things to help them as long as I’m able to.’

 Gilder Mitsubishi has been an on-going supporter of the hospice. The dealership has lent the charity vehicles and staff have raised thousands of pounds through various fundraisers.
