We provide specialist care and support to help those with a life-limiting illness


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Each and everyone of us are affected by cancer or a life ending life ending illness at some point in our lives. This is just one instance where unfortunately cancer won. 

In May 2019 John was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and he fought hard to save his life through 6 rounds of chemotherapy, but unfortunately just 7 months later he lost the battle and we sadly lost him on 5th December 2019. 

The last few weeks of John's life was spent at St Roccos Hospice where the care they provided was above and beyond anything we could have expected. They did everything they could to make him as comfortable as possible, in a homely environment where he could spend his final moments with his family and friends.

It is only by being alongside John through this experience that we have come to realize the incredible work this charity does. We simply cannot thank them enough for their work, and we want to make sure that other families going through this heart wrenching time get the same love and support that St Rocco's provide and we really hope that you'll all support us in doing so!

On 16th July 2021, a team of family, friends and I will be setting off on one of the toughest journeys we have attempted. We will be cycling from Whitehaven to Tynemouth, a journey of 140 miles over 2 days. Our aim is to raise as much money as we can, and every penny raised will be donated to St Rocco's Hospice.
