few years ago I lost my wonderful uncle Paul to bowel cancer
he was just 57 when he died."
"He and his partner received such compassionate and dignified
care and support from staff in a wonderful hospice in Cornwall so
I wanted to raise some money for my own local hospice to help them
continue to deliver the same care for others."
"Competing in this years Bubble Rush is my way of showing
support to the hospice and remembering my uncle."
Emma Newbold, lead nurse in palliative care, adds: "Weston
Hospicecare do a fantastic job. Two years ago the hospice looked
after my mother-in-law and took incredible care of her. I want to
thank them by raising money through the Bubble Rush."
Jan Dallard, Clinical Nurse Specialist in Palliative Care at the
hospital, says: "Weston Hospicecare are an invaluable part
of the local community so Im looking forward to taking part
in the Bubble Rush with the rest of my colleagues to raise money
for this fantastic organisation that do so much for others."
The nurses will be competing in the family friendly run along with
their friends, relatives and other members of staff from the hospital,
such as Jodie Fry, executive assistant at the Trust, who adds: "Ive
just started running and really wanted to do something to raise
money for a local cause. Weve all signed up together and were
really looking forward to the Bubble Rush where we can have fun
while also supporting the hospice."
