We’re here for you… because you’re here for us

Madeleine Whitehouse took part in Cycle Spring 2022 to thank St Giles Hospice for caring for her mum, Deb, in her final days.

She said: “I wish I had the right words to describe the care my mum received at St Giles – it was just phenomenal. We couldn’t have asked for a more positive and peaceful place for mum to pass away.

“My dad was able to stay over at the hospice throughout mum’s time there and they brought us all beds for mum’s final night so that my dad, sister and I could all be with her at the end. They made us feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible – it felt just like we were at home.

“Until you’ve been supported by St Giles, you’ll never truly understand how much the money you raise will mean to the people who are affected by its care. I’m so grateful for everything the staff did for us, and for everything that they’ll continue to do for others in the future.”
