We’re raising money to Support Sue Ryder, Leckhampton Court
Sadly last month we lost a good friend and colleague, Malcolm Ball. Malc was recently diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and sadly after a very short period, passed away due to the illness. In his memory we’re organising a fund raising drive so that we can raise as much money as possible to help Sue Ryder.
Malcolm’s final days were spent at the Leckhampton Court Hospice in Cheltenham which is part of the Sue Ryder foundation. It was here that he received Palliative care for his illness and was treated with love and dignity during this very difficult period. Not only did Sue Ryder provide this care for Malcolm but they also offered love and support to his wife Vanessa and his Children. The care that he received meant that his final days were spent in nice surroundings with wonderful people, where his family could be around him and where he was kept as pain free as possible.
