Mike Pullin BEM and his Hospice Angels have raised almost £600,000 for St Michael’s Hospice since 1996, a fantastic achievement which everyone at St Michael’s is eternally grateful for.

Throughout lockdown, Mike has continued supporting his Hospice raising £30,817 so far in 2020.
His latest fundraising has come from auctioning personal possessions and other donated items on Facebook, plus collecting and selling scrap metal. His friends, meanwhile, have made donations to St Michael’s through the Hospice Angels.

Mike also set himself the challenge of virtually cycling 126 miles, which is the distance covered when he and his friend Mick Marshall took a horse called ‘Frank’ to London in 2002
Mike said, ‘Mick did many things for the Hospice and our adventure with ‘Frank’ the horse is still one my fundraising highlights. Mick died at St Michael’s on 8th May 2012, and I wanted to mark the anniversary of his death.’

Mike has been joined on the fundraiser by Ben Lindon, who is living with a terminal illness. So far the mighty duo have covered 108 virtual miles.
