On Saturday I went over to the Hospice at Quidenham to give away 20 books. It was a miserable grey day and the reality of the day to day running of the hospices really hit home. I can see why all the fundraising material we have been given is so bright and colourful. The visit only served to make me even more determined to raise as much as we can.
Due to the confidentiality needed for the families it was arranged for me to hand the books over to the staff on duty and I met Kate Jay, who welcomed me in and introduced me to other staff and to Chloe, one of the residents. Whilst Chloe needs constant care she was very keen to help us unpack the books and Kate asked if she would like to have her photo taken as our PR contact would like one. She was brilliant and is a natural in front of a camera.
