And our business is fully on board and will be lending a Helping Hand!

In May 2013 cancer survivor and local lady, Linda Bishop will be beating formidable boundaries to raise £25,000.00 for specialist Complementary Therapy equipment at St Michael’s Hospice in Hereford and needs your support.

This unique Herefordshire walk will take place from 6th – 26th May 2013 starting and ending at Kington with Linda walking approximately 10 miles a day across varied terrain. The mission is nearly 200 miles and will take three weeks to complete.

Linda is undertaking the challenge to say thank you St Michaels Hospice for all their help, support and treatment during her own cancer battles.

Linda’s journey began in 2011 when she was referred to Day Hospice at St Michael’s Hospice with recurring Parotid tumours which she had been suffering with since her early 30’s. Ever the fighter and with the aid of the Hospice’s Complementary Therapies Team, Linda’s gritty determination now sees her back to health.

Many businesses, including ours are getting involved - sponsoring and supporting Linda’s challenge in aid of St Michael’s Hospice.

There are many ways in which your business, organisation, school, council or group can lend a Helping Hand and support this amazing endeavour:
