THE STORY:

In 2010 my father died after fighting prostate cancer for 10 years. He was helped in his last year by the Hospice movement and his peace was found with their help.

In 2010 I also embarked on a journey - I lost 13 stone for my dad. He always told me I needed to look after myself and so I took up his challenge and made it happen - for me, my wife and daughter and for my mum as well as the memory of dad.

I also joined the staff at the Hospice of St Francis as a Major Gift Specialist fundraiser.

For most of us the mental picture that springs to mind when you mention the "H" word is not a good one but our job here is to help people manage their pain, come to terms with their illness and help their carers, family and friends make the most of the time they have left with their loved one.

We now are leading the way in early therapies for those diagnosed with life-shortening illnesses.

We are providing support and services not just for those patients but also for their carers and family, providing those services post bereavement.

Children who have lost their parent need help coming to terms with their loss and we are there for them as long as they need us.

I am passionate about the Hospice - not just because they keep me employed - but mainly because I BELIEVE in our work. So in October 2015 I am undertaking a trek through Nepal to help raise funds. I have set myself a target of £17,106.40 or $28,006.85 (10% of our bed cost for the year) but I want to raise more so please help me make it happen. This will keep one bed of our 14 beds open for 6 weeks - or pay for a whole year of gas heating in the Hospice. You can find out more about the trek and about the Hospice on our website www.stfrancis.org.uk
