Well done Rudolph Runners!

Thank you to all our Rudolph Runners who took to the grounds of Tamworth Castle in 2019 to kick off the festive season in style. It was an incredible day for all that took part and we were delighted to see so many of you there!

We hope our Rudolph Run will be back this year!

Whether you choose to run or walk the 3km or 6km course – on your own, as a team or even with your four legged friends – join us in your Christmas jumper at our 12th annual Rudolph Run on Sunday 6th December 2020!

We’ll be launching this year’s event very soon, but if you have any queries in the meantime, please contact us at fundraising@stgileshospice.com or call 01543 432538.

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

“We were so glad Kathleen was able to be at St Giles for the last two weeks of her life. It was more compassionate care than just the medical care she’d received before.”

For Mandy Bates, her husband Andrew and their family, the Rudolph Run in 2018 was a way to give back to St Giles and say thank you for the care Andrew’s mum, Kathleen, received before she died.

Kathleen had been at St Giles in Whittington for 17 days after a spell in Good Hope Hospital.

“The care she received from St Giles was outstanding. The staff there are all angels! If we wanted something, someone was there straight away and her dignity was uppermost. You just couldn’t fault their care.

“She didn’t like the idea of going into St Giles at first because she knew where she was going and what it meant. But, after a couple of days, she relaxed and realised she was being well looked after so she was content. It was so much more compassionate than just the medical care she’d received before.

“We were so glad she was able to be at St Giles for the last two weeks of her life. We did the Rudolph Run because we wanted to give something back for the amazing care she received.

“It was a great day and we all really enjoyed it. I’d definitely recommend it to other people.”
