Fundraise and help people like Lynsey
Lynsey's friend, Clare, ran the London Marathon with her colleagues and raised over £10,000 in memory of her friend, Lynsey. She tells Lynsey's story.
"When Lynsey became really poorly, she was admitted to the ward. It lifted her. She was able to have her privacy at the Hospice and the nurses gave her back her dignity.
"Everyone on the ward was so caring and thoughtful. Lynsey's mum, her partner Rob and I were able to stay with her before she died. I'll never forget the kindness of the nurses. They looked after us too and really helped us to understand what was happening and what to expect.
"I ran the marathon for Lynsey, to help raise money for the amazing hospice that looked after her."
