Why run for us?
Because without the contributions of people like you who do challenges like this for our Charity, without your fundraising help, the Florence Nightingale Hospice could not provide all the services it does to those in our community who need end of life care in the Hospice or at home, or who need support to live with life-limiting or terminal illness. We could not provide care in their own homes for sick children whose families need a break or time to care for siblings, or provide comfort and a listening ear when people are bereaved. And much more.
“The London Marathon was the most amazing thing that I have ever done. The whole day was unbelievable. It went so quick it was like a blur. All those hours of training were completely worth it. The crowd were absolutely fantastic the whole way round. The reason I ran the marathon was for Florence Nightingale Hospice, as they looked after my mum in her final few days. It is such a great charity that make you feel welcomed and comfortable in such a difficult time. I just had to give something back…..I also promised my mum that one day I would do it and I can finally say that I RAN THE LONDON MARATHON!”
Matthew Farrier – London Marathon
“I chose to support the Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity as this is where my father spent his final days before he passed away 12 years ago and they have provided consistent support to my family ever since, so I wanted to raise money for this charity to help other families going through this very tough time.
“The first 5 miles was very tough as it was consistently uphill. However, throughout the whole 13.1 miles local residents were cheering on all the
runners, handing out sweets and the views of the Peak District motivated me to push through and keep running. Being met by my friends and family at the finish line and the fact I had raised double my
target was the perfect end to the race and I can’t wait to run it again next year!”
