Story

        SNOWDON for SPRING HILL HOSPICE
                          Sunday 4th May

10 years ago this year my Dad, Andy Burgoyne, died of Stomach Cancer in Spring Hill Hospice, Rochdale.  This painful time was made a whole lot easier by the support and care given to my Dad, myself, my family and friends by the staff at the Hospice.
  The Hospice also provided 2 weeks of respite care during the months leading upto his death.  As an 18yr old living at home alone with my Dad, I cannot express how important respite care is, not only for the patient but also the people around them.

  The Hospice have also cared for a number of other loved ones in my life. So to show our appreciation to them and the work they do I have arranged for myself and 9 friends who have also had a parent or loved one cared for by the Hospice,  to do a Sponsored walk up Snowdon on the 4th of May.  This would have been my Dad's 56th birthday.


UPDATE.   5TH MAY 08
As many of you know we had to change our date to the 25th of May due to bad weather and other debilataing factors......so that means more time for sponsoring!!!!!
Thanks to you all who have helped us raise so much money for the Hospice and please continue to spread the word.

   Much love, Gem xxxxxxxxxxxx
