Donna's Fun Walk Story

#WalkWithMe on Sunday 14 May

Dying Matters

"When we heard about the Fun Walk Dad was still in the hospice and urged us all to take part as a 'thank you' for everything they were doing for us.

"It was a really great way of us giving back to the hospice and giving us all a sense of purpose – we didn’t feel powerless as we were out there raising money and awareness for this great cause.

"When we went back to Dad’s room and showed him our medals he was so proud and urged us to keep fundraising – so we have!

"We’ll be taking part in the Fun Walk again this year and hope you’ll join us."
