We provide specialist palliative care to islanders with life-limiting conditions


This is it! London Marathon 2024 here I come!!!

After a failed attempt last year, my knee gave way half way through training, I am pleased to say that this year I have completed my final long training run and will make that start line. It is going to be painful and not in a time that I would have liked, still injured and heavily taped, but I am DETERMINED to do this! 'Jeffing' has become my new best friend.

Whilst I managed to get a ballot place, I am raising funds for Hospice. A Charity very close to my heart, which has helped so many of my family and friends over the years.

Thank you to those that sponsored me last year, your donations (£295) went straight to the Charity and I felt very guilty about not even crossing the start line for this.

This year, I did not want to set up my JustGiving page until I knew that I could complete the training and make that start line, so here I am, less than two weeks to go - excited, nervous, but I will make it!

I am not a natural runner and still injured, so this will be a major major challenge for me, but I would like to use this to raise as much funds as possible for such a worthwhile charity. All donations very much appreciated!

Thank You!


Jersey Hospice Care is a specialist palliative care service and the island’s only hospice, providing holistic care for patients with any life limiting illness. Jersey Hospice Care is an independent charity and makes no charge to patients. It costs £14,800 a day to run the charity’s services. Funding for our care services is thanks to the generosity of Islanders.

We are here for the community because of the community. Without your continued support and generous donations this wouldn’t be possible.
