Thank you to Francesca, who decided to run 30 miles in June to raise money for Prospect Hospice. She was a complete beginner at running so not only was this a personal challenge but a very important one to her. Prospect Hospice supported her family and cared for her mum Paula in her final weeks in 2019 so she really wanted to give something back to the hospice. Thank you Francesca for taking on this challenge and smashing your target, raising a wonderful £1,405.
Thank you to Stratton St Margaret Parish Council – every year, the chairman chooses a local charity to raise money, and we are thrilled to have been chosen this year.

The twins wanted to raise money for the hospice as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award after the charity cared for their grandad in his final days and raised the money by baking afternoon tea boxes for their local community in Castle Eaton.
Each week saw a different theme with scones, a Victoria Sandwich, cupcakes and even ice cream, all made by the boys before being delivered in person.
They were so well supported that they’re already looking at what they can do next.
