who lost his battle with lung cancer in 1991.
Mark, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"I have experienced at close hand the work that Weston Hospicecare
does. A cousin of mine who was terminally ill with cancer last
year was able to discuss his end of life with people who understood
what he was going through."
"I am looking forward to the trip and hope to raise a good
sum for these three good causes."
