Our beloved mum Sue and devoted wife to Maurice past away on 12th September 2020 after her 4 year battle against cancer. We would like to say a big thank you to all the consultants, doctors and nurses at the Mount Vernon Cancer Center.They worked tirelessly and supported mum every step of the way. They also supported Dad and the family when needed. We want to raise money to help the staff and the unit in helping and supporting others to fight their battle against cancer.
We lost our mom to Covid in September. We wanted to support a charity in her memory so we looked at causes that care for the terminally ill so we can help ease the pain of families in a similar situation as ours. The 'Lister Butterfly Volunteer Service' stood out.
im fundraising because the butterfly service looked after my dad while he was ill with cancer just before christmas
The Butterfly Volunteers do amazing work for those at the end of their lives and their families, you helped my Dad, now I want to help you!
As a Butterfly volunteer myself, I recognise the importance of what we do. We offer a calm, caring and gentle support to patients at the end of their life. Please help us to ensure this vital service continues and grows.
As a respiratory/ICU physio I spent a lot of time with the most unwell patients in the hospital. Many don’t get to go outside and are stuck in rooms with limited natural light for weeks or months at a time. Being able to take patients outside to a designated made for purpose area will make a huge difference to their wellbeing and overall care! For some it will be the last time they get to go outside. It is also great for the well-being of the staff as well 😊This cause means a lot
To raise funds for the Lynda Jackson Macmillan centre which provides support and information to people affected by cancer. It was one of the first centres of its kind.
Terry Sofflet passed away suddenly on 30th December 2018. It was his wish to not to have flowers at his funeral, but instead to have donations to a chosen charity.
Just a few months after my battle with breast cancer I lost a very dera work colleague, Peter White to cancer. This is in his memory.
I have used LJMC in the past for myself. It’s an amazing centre of support and hope it continues.
So many good causes for patients and staff.
To honour my colleagues who have worked so hard during the pandemic to protect and serve our local community. For all the lives saved and sadly lost.
