"I jumped out of a perfectly good plane in memory of my mum."

"Running the Havering Half helped me deal with my grief."

Leonore ran the Havering Half Marathon in memory of her sister, Wendy. She says that running was a wonderful way to remember her sister and helped her heal after her sister passed away.

"The Hospice saved Vlad and they saved me."

When the pandemic hit, Vlad, who lived in a care home, was unable to be visited by his parents. In his distress, his condition deteriorated and the Hospice got involved to help co-ordinate his care and manage his pain. His mother now credits the Hospice with saving her son's life.

Your support helps to fund care for people like Vlad, who live with incurable conditions.
