Marie Curie

We offer expert care, guidance and support to people living with a terminal illness

Charity Registration No. 207994 (England & Wales) and SC038731 (Scotland)


We (stupidly) have signed up to climb Kilimanjaro in February next year just after the first anniversary of loosing Kim/ Mum.

She was diagnosed with terminal cancer in December and sadly she passed away just 7 short weeks later at the Marie Curie Hospice in Solihull.

Laura has never even climbed a hill let alone Africa's biggest mountain, struggles with the stairs to be honest.  Picking the most appropriate high heels for each day will prove a challenge along with trying to find a plug socket for her straighteners.  Carla has agreed to get matching false eyelashes to help with the altitude and also has just purchased a pair of industrial ear defenders to help with the constant moaning of "are we nearly there yet".

By doing this trek to raise money for Marie Curie we hope another family will benefit from the amazing work that the staff at the hospice do.

Please, please, please sponsor us for this trek. Thank you for your support.
