Sue Ryder

We give people compassion and expert care to help them live the best life they can

Charity Registration No. 1052076


Team Bacon is made up of a number of people, who have and continue to undertake numerous challenges in memory of Martin Bacon, who died in 2013 from a brain tumour. We're raising money for the incredible hospice, Thorpe Hall, where he received his palliative care in his final few weeks. As many of you know, Martin was an inspirational head teacher at Swavesey Village College and is still greatly missed by his family, staff, students, and friends. 

Now, a small group of staff at CMAT - Andy Daly, Martin Campbell, Josh Harris and Mark Woods - are undertaking the 'Race to the Stones' challenge on the 13th and 14th of July.

Martin's legacy lives on, and we're all passionate about supporting the incredible work of Sue Ryder. Please donate if you can.
