Yesterday (Wednesday 6 May), YourThurrock reported on the moving story of a family who are completing a ten mile walk next week to show their gratitude for the care the Hospice showed a dear loved one of theirs in her last few days.

The Just Giving page they set up has raised nearly £5000 for St Luke’s.

YourThurrock also yesterday brought you the story of Ewan Lloyd, who has completed a ten mile walk and tree climb in order to raise money for St Luke’s as a way to honour his Great Nan who is currently being cared at the Hospice.

On Sunday 26 April, YT brought you the story of Grant Reynolds, the man who went the extra mile and decided to complete his own 10k run on Easter Sunday and raised thousands for the Hospice.

As St Luke’s Hospice’s Kerry alludes to in the video above, there have been many other incredible stories of fundraising for the Hospice in recent weeks.

These are just a few examples.
