St Andrew's Hospice

We provide specialist care in Grimsby to all ages with life limiting illness.

Charity Registration No. 1011117


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
It was so good last year to raise money for CALM in the Great Grimsby 10k with my colleague Karl Gilchrist.  Working as teachers at St Martin's Prep School we are keen to encourage our pupils to support local community projects and as running has become something I really enjoy now I would like our local community to benefit from my personal challenge to myself : to run 12 races in 12 months in 2019. 

St Andrews Hospice is well known in Grimsby as a safe place to stay that provides free care for anyone over the age of 18 with a wide range of progressive life-limiting conditions, including cancer, Motor neurone disease, cardio-vascular diseases, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.

January - Hadleigh 10k (Essex) off road race
