Hospice supporter Sabrina Howley is gearing up for a two-day 100km walk for St Michael’s next month.

Her coast-to-coast walk will take her from Minehead to Dawlish, and she has a very special reason to embark on the challenge.

Recently, her dear friend Shirley spent three weeks being cared for by the Hospice.

Shirley said: ‘I cannot believe the amazing facilities that are available at the Hospice. It was like staying in a five-star hotel. 

‘From social workers, pastoral care, mindfulness, massages, doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, to the wonderful team of cooks. Plus, many more I haven’t mentioned. The support team were there immediately at your bedside at the press of a button during the night if you were anxious or in pain.

‘Nothing was too much trouble – absolutely every single person that works there obviously loves their job and cannot do enough to help you.’ 

To help with her fundraising, Sabrina is holding a virtual tombola raffle this Friday (25th), which has a number of prizes donated by small, local businesses.
