My lovely friend and colleague Emma Smith sadly lost her mum to cancer almost ten years ago. Emma and her boyfriend Paulie have become very passionate fundraisers for cancer charities, particularly the Isabel Hospice, the place that took great care of Emma’s mum.
They both run to raise money, with Paulie completing the London Marathon in April and Emma currently training for her third Great North Run. They also put on quiz nights and various other events to raise money throughout the year.
At the moment they are selling raffle tickets to raise money for the hospice. Prizes currently include:
*Two guest list tickets to Fabric
*A hair cut at the Lily Maila Salon
*£40 bar tab at The Slaughtered Lamb and so much more.
Tickets are £1 and ALL proceeds will be going to the Isabel Hospice.
The hospice provides completely free care throughout eastern Herfordshire. They have a team of specialist community nurses and they provide a day hospice, family support services, an in-patient hospice and a bereavement service. They have a brilliant team of fully trained volunteers to support their medical team and everyone is dedicated to providing a safe, supportive and calm environment for patients and their loved ones.
