We offer a range of specialist services to people living with a terminal illness


After being diagnosed with incurable cancer, I began writing a book and to help fill the final chapter with excitement, I contacted Captain Alan Ramsden, at Tiger Helicopters and began the challenge of obtaining my private pilot licence.

During my 45 hours of training, I hope to rise to the challenge of flying a helicopter at 35 hundred feet above St Michael's in Bartestree.

Children from the age of 14 can learn to fly a helicopter, so being diagnosed with cancer at the age of 85 isn't going to stop me.

Living with cancer has made me appreciate just how crucial Hospice care is and I hope taking to the skies will encourage you to dig deep and donate to a worthwhile cause.
