Mum was diagnosed with Liver cancer in August 2017. After fighting bravely and with such courage for two years, she passed away peacefully at home on 9th October 2019. During her illness she received support from St.Clares hospice and the Helen Rollason charity, particularly in her final months and weeks. There was nothing mum liked more than a beautiful bunch of flowers, particularly lilies and gerberas. However, it was her wish to raise money for the two charities that had helped her through her illness. Mum enjoyed treatments and coffee mornings through Helen Rollason and St.Clares provided support to Mum and all the family, mainly since May of this year when we learned the illness had progressed.


We hope that any money raised will help to give another family the care and support we received during this difficult time.


Thank you
