We provide specialist care and support to life-threatened children & their family


Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. Please dig deep and sponsor me online.

I'm a Cancer survivor thanks to the skill and care of some very special people. When I was first diagnosed at 50 and during my treatment I sometimes felt sorry for myself . Later, I came to realise how lucky and privileged I'd been to have lived such a full and happy life. Now, of course, I enjoy every day.

Sadly, many children are not so lucky. Cancer and other life-limiting illnesses often strike from nowhere and devastate the lives of children and their families. In celebration of my 'second chance' I intend to make a difference and do what I can to help these fantastic children, their fantastic families, and their fantastic carers and friends.

By attempting a sponsored climb of Kilimanjaro, at nearly 20,000 ft  the highest free-standing mountain in the world, I hoped to raise a serious sum of money for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).  Finally, on 28 Sep 06 after 6 days climbing, I reached the top !!

Sponsorship is still most welcome. For £15 (the price of a round of drinks) you can give  a session of therapeutic play for a sick child. For £29 an hour of respite care in a hospice. For £56, 2 hours of symptom or pain relief for a child whose condition has no cure. £90 will provide 3 hours of specialist support for the family of a child with a life-threatening condition, including after bereavement. Even £2 will make a difference if enough people give. Please will you help?   

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: East Anglia's Children's Hospices will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

So please sponsor me now!   (click one of the buttons beside the photo).

Many thanks for your support.
