"I have been fundraising for the Hospice for more than two decades, making me one of St Clare’s longest serving volunteers."

“I helped found the Hospice’s Loughton Friends Group in 1994 and was chairman for 15 years, helping to raise thousands of pounds for St Clare over the years. I also volunteer at the Debden shop one afternoon a week.

I was inspired to start fundraising after my late husband, George, was diagnosed with a brain tumour. I could see then that the Hospice was vital service and I still do. There will always be people who need the help and support St Clare provides.

It’s been a very personal journey for me the last 20-odd years, but one I have really enjoyed. Volunteering is one of the best things I have ever done; I’m still as passionate about St Clare as I was all those years ago.”
