The Big Bathe was the initiative of my sister - Victoria Hall-Hulme.
Victoria was diagnosed with bowel cancer when she was only 32 years old and when she found out her cancer was terminal, she fought with all her strength to raise money and awareness so that other people could be spared and live better and happier lives. The inaugural Big Bathe event took place in July 2022 and raised more than £68,000.
Victoria sadly passed away in September 2022 at St Wilfrid's Hospice, Bosham and as her family and friends, we are organising another Big Bathe in her honour for causes close to her heart - Bowel Cancer UK and St. Wilfrid's Hospice.
You don’t ever imagine you will need to take your 33 year old wife, younger sister, friend, daughter, or niece to a hospice and a scenario that we wouldn’t wish upon anyone. But St Wilfrid’s Hospice for Victoria and for us as her family and friends was a haven - quiet and beautiful, where the care is personalised and full of love.
St Wilfrid's Hospice cares for and supports the most vulnerable members of our community.
Please join us - this will be a joyous day - whether you are a swimmer, in the bowel cancer community or your loved ones have been supported by the dedicate care at St Wilfrid's hospice, come down to the Big Bathe 2023 to show your support!
