Tragically, after a hard and fast battle, I lost my mum to cancer on the 19th September 2021, around 5 weeks after a very sudden and unexpected diagnosis. The incredible team at Strathcarron Hospice made my mums last days as comfortable and dignified as possible and gave my mum and her family the strength required to get through her final days, with such immense care and compassion.

On the 29th May 2022, myself and my beautiful cousin Linda will be running the Edinburgh marathon to raise money for Strathcarron Hospice. I have never ran more than a half marathon and haven't ran much since having my first child, Olive, so this will be a huge challenge.

Strathcarron hospice need to raise £14,315 a day to keep their services running. The team go above and beyond to help patients and their families with life-limiting illnesses at a time when they need it the most.

We would really appreciate your support to allow this service to continue to provide families with the care, compassion and support that was provided to us. Thank you! 🙏💛
