Vicki’s fundraising story

Vicki Marks helped raise hundreds of pounds for St Michael’s in just a few quick clicks…and you can do the same.

Here’s her story:

‘I’d entered Venus and received an email from the Hospice’s Events Manager reminding us about sponsorship,’ said Vicki.

‘I just thought; ‘There’s nothing to stop me doing it. I’ll give it a try’.

‘It was very simple. I just set-up the JustGiving page and posted it very quietly on Facebook. A short time later my husband said, ‘It’s up to £250’. I was so chuffed.’

Her fundraising total continued to grow and in no time at all had risen to just shy of £400.

‘I didn’t really do anything.

‘It was surprising who it captures and I’d encourage anyone to do it.’

Vicki completed Venus just a month after her father, Hospice Angel Colin Lancaster, died at St Michael’s.

‘There were three of us who did the walk.

‘The night was very touching – and very tiring!’
