St Columba's Hospice

St Columba’s Hospice provides specialist care and support to patients with terminal conditions, and their families, across Edinburgh and the Lothians. Our aim is to give everyone within our community access to free care whoever they are, wherever they are, and whenever they need it.

Charity Registration No. SC003634


I am doing the following challenge:

Just before Christmas 2015, and after a long battle with a brain tumour, my daughter Emma was moved to St Columba's Hospice, Edinburgh, to receive palliative care after it was found no further treatment was possible.

While there, she received astounding care and support from all the staff, as did her family, and we will always be grateful.

Emma died peacefully on January 14th 2016.

I want to return the support we all received from the hospice, and so I am taking up the 4-day cycle challenge to raise as much as I can for them.
