By choosing a sponsored place at a discounted price of £15 you agree to raise a minimum of £199 for our chosen charity partner Phyllis Tuckwell, if you fail to raise this amount by the 6th of September you will not be allowed to take part without paying the full entry fee. Also, by choosing this option you agree to us passing your details to Phyllis Tuckwell who will be in touch with you to support you in your fundraising efforts.
For nearly 40 years Phyllis Tuckwell has been caring and supporting patients, families and friends who have been given the worst possible news.
We have a range of free services to ensure that adult patients and families living with an advanced or terminal illness (such as cancer, heart, lung or neurological disease) can make the most of their lives…because every day is precious. This expresses the reason we are here and why we do what we do. It captures the sentiment of patients, carers, families and friends…and the wider community. It is sensitive to the fact we may be talking days, or weeks, or years. Whatever time is left, we’re here…because every day is precious.
Phyllis Tuckwell is the only Hospice Care service for adult patients, and their families, across the whole of West Surrey and part of North East Hampshire.
For many patients living with an advanced or terminal illness, Hospice Care helps manage pain and improves the quality of life for both the patient and their family. Seeking care through Phyllis Tuckwell isn’t about giving up hope or hastening death, but rather a way to get the most appropriate care in the last phase of life…because every day is precious.
In addition to its In-Patient Unit and Care at Home service, Phyllis Tuckwell has recently introduced a range of Living Well services both in the Hospice and at the Beacon Centre. These services enable the patient to manage the impact of their illness, cope with changes, improve wellbeing and remain as independent as possible – so that they can get the most out of life.
