Over the past couple of month we have been inspired by the acts of generosity and kindness that people have shown across the country.

People’s determination to do something positive even in the toughest of times has been truly amazing. From people ensuring their vulnerable neighbours have the supplies they need to Captain Tom capturing the hearts of the nation.

We have been humbled by the outpouring of support we have received from our local community.

One young man who is spending his lockdown raising money for St Christopher’s is 9-year-old William Seeley who walked 10km by completing a dizzying 166 laps of his garden.

I’m trying to raise money for St Christopher’s Hospice who looked after my mummy when she was very sick

On his Just Giving page William explained, “I’m trying to raise money for St Christopher’s Hospice who looked after my mummy when she was very sick.” William’s mum, Jenny, died of a melanoma at the hospice in 2013 aged 27 and the family have shown their support by fundraising for us ever since.
