On the 18th September 2014 Cher, Bish and I will be trekking the Great

Wall of China in memory of my friend Charlotte. We are raising money for

St. Peter’s Hospice, Bristol’s only adult hospice that provides support,

help and care for people with life limiting illnesses and their

 

In October 2013 I spent the day at St. Peter’s with Charlotte and my

university friends Lynne and Jenny. Although the circumstances of our

visit were extremely sad I will always treasure the time I got to spend

with Charlotte, her husband and 2 year old daughter Emily. The staff at

St. Peter’s Hospice were wonderful heating up the homemade soup we’d

made and offering us endless cups of tea. Charlotte was comfortable and

most importantly so was Emily who got to play and run around the garden

while we gossiped and put the world to rights. Charlotte peacefully

passed away a few days later surrounded by her family at St. Peters

Hospice at the age of 33.

 

St Peter’s hospice only receives 25% of its funding from the NHS. The

remaining 75% is received through its shops, fund-raising activities and

gifts from wills – so it’s really important that the local community

supports St. Peter’s.

 

We fly to Beijing on Thursday 18th September 2014 and the trek begins on

Saturday 20th. We’ll trek approximately 90km in 7 days staying in

various mountain hotels with a single night spent in a local farmer’s

house!

 

Please, please, please give generously to such a worthy cause. This trip

is self-funded so 100% of your donations will be given to St. Peter’s

Thank you for your support

Cher, Bish and Kellie xx
