Hospice supporter Allan Lloyd pledges proceeds from his book to St Michael's

Hospice supporter Allan Lloyd pledges proceeds from his book to St Michael’s

A Hospice supporter has published his memoir, with all proceeds coming to St Michael’s.

Standing on Aberyscir Hill tells the story of Allan Lloyd, a prominent campaigner from Kington who has raised thousands of pounds for his Hospice.

Allan, together with late wife Angela, fought for more than a decade to bring radiotherapy and chemotherapy services to Hereford County Hospital in a bid to cut travel times for patients in mid-Wales.

The couple also sought to raise awareness of St Michael’s and the care it can provide patients in Radnorshire.

Angela died in 2017 aged 77. Following her funeral, almost £3,000 was donated to St Michael’s.

Earlier that year, in what was the couple’s 60th wedding anniversary, Allan completed the Welsh Peaks Challenge, climbing six legendary Welsh fells in August to raise funds for St Michael’s.

Then, between April 2018 and May 2019, Allan visited 100 Welsh waterfalls to help raise awareness of St Michael’s.

The book charts the life of this campaigner, fundraiser and father of six.

Allan said, “I am still walking hand-in-hand with Angela, still supporting St Michael’s Hospice, as she would dearly wish.”

More than £1,000 in sales and additional donations has already been raised for St Michael’s since the book went on sale a few weeks ago.

To buy a copy, just click here or call into the St Michael’s Hospice Reception in Bartestree. The book will also soon be on sale at the Hospice’s Coffee & Books shop on Station Road in Leominster.

It’s priced £10 with all proceeds coming to St Michael’s.
