“I wish I could give the world to St Giles for how they helped us all through an awful time.”

Burton mother and daughter Suzi and Kiera Baxter took part in the 2019 Solstice Walk in memory of their much loved dad and grandad, George Hope.

Suzi said she and Kiera were committed to supporting St Giles to thank them for the amazing support the family had received.

“Dad was a fiercely independent man and the team from St Giles did everything to keep him at home for as long as possible,” she said.

“When he was admitted to Whittington he was a regular sight on the ward on his mobility scooter. He really enjoyed a chat and a laugh with the nurses.

”We are very excited to be a part of something that is so close to our hearts.  I know my father would be very proud of us both for doing this walk in his memory.”

Join Suzi and Kiera by fundraising for St Giles and help us to support local people and their families living with a potentially terminal illness.
