Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I am raising funds for Saint Francis Hospice, an independent charity based in Essex and one of the largest adult hospices in the UK. The hospice provides care and support to individuals with a life-limiting illness, as well as their carers and family members, completely free of charge. Each year the hospice needs to raise millions of pounds in voluntary income to sustain its incredibly high standard of operations, so every donation counts!
My personal connection to the hospice centres on my godmother, Frances (Fran) Garrett. In January 2000, Fran sadly lost her battle with breast cancer and passed away at the hospice. I visited Fran numerous times while she was in residence there and, even as a child, was struck by the incredible care and attention the hospice staff afforded to her and the other patients. As a result the hospice is a cause close to my heart and the same can be said for many, many others. Thank you for reading and thank you for any amount you're able to donate to this fantastic charity.
