Sue Ryder

We give people compassion and expert care to help them live the best life they can

Charity Registration No. 1052076

Story

I’m running the Brighton Marathon in April to raise as much money as I can for Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice in Cheltenham, where I have worked as a Research Nurse since 2012.  I care for patients in research studies which aim to help improve patient’s symptoms and experiences when they are faced with life threatening illnesses. I love working at the hospice and feel very fortunate to work with a team of wonderful people who make such a difference at what can be the most challenging time in a person’s life.

To continue to provide this hospice care we need to raise around £2.5 million per year.  In real terms your donations could help pay for the following:

  • £18 could pay for one hour of care to support people to live the fullest life possible
  • £135 could pay for a hospice nurse for a day
  • £500 could pay for a day of in-patient care

This is a huge challenge for me and 26.2 miles feels way out of my comfort zone.  I’d be so grateful if you felt able to support me, even a small amount can help to make a very big difference.
