Story

My wonderful Dad passed away earlier this year and as a family we will be forever indebted to the amazing staff and volunteers at the Earl Mountbatten Hospice for showing both him and us amazing care, kindness and love in his final few weeks. 

Steve, Debbie, Lena, Annie, Anna, Roo, Laura, John and the rest of the team moved mountains to make sure Dad and the rest of the family had everything we needed through this very difficult time. In his three weeks in the hospice and then his final two weeks at home Dad and the rest of us were secure in the knowledge that nothing was too much to ask and help and support was available 24/7

As an organisation the hospice receives 35% of its funding through the NHS and the rest comes from donations and fundraising. As a family we are determined to show our absolute appreciation the only way we know we will make a definite difference - by fundraising for this excellent cause to ensure that other people can feel as safe, as loved and as cared for in their final days as Dad felt.
