Here, Malcolm’s daughter Lisa, a Relationship Fundraising Manager at the Hospice, and her daughter Kayla, explain what the Hospice means to them and how his adventurous spirit lives on.
“All of us who work in Fundraising are passionate about the Hospice,” says Lisa. “But I have a special reason to spur me on. I started at the Hospice last spring, supporting those taking on fundraising challenges.
Dad was passionate about exploring new places. We all loved our family holidays and he enjoyed trips taking on challenges, like the Inca trail in Peru, the Three Peaks Challenge and Seven Sisters closer to home.
Dad would be so proud that I now work for the Hospice, encouraging others to push themselves to try something new, just as he did.” – Lisa
“I’m very proud of my mum; through her work she’s able to help other families like ours.
My grandad was funny, kind and strong. The Hospice looked after him when he was poorly. I liked the Quiet Room. It was calm and safe, a place to forget my worries and where I coloured butterflies. We created a collage of family photos for Grandad’s room. The staff were really nice to me, my little sister Chloe and our cousins Amber, Daisy and Jack.
“I still like to visit the Quiet Room, light a candle and think about Grandad.“
“I made a book to write down memories of Grandad and still write letters to him on the special days he can’t be with us. Last year Nanny and I did Moonlight Walk together. It was lovely spending time with Nanny doing something to remember Grandad and support the Hospice, so it can help families like ours.”
“I am supporting the Hospice this spring by hanging a Remembrance Ribbon in memory of my Grandad. Please add a ribbon for your loved one too.”
