On October 1st we launched Terry’s Appeal.
Terry was cared for at Mount Edgcumbe Hospice during lockdown, and during this time, he talked to us about what had happened to him, and what being cared for at the hospice meant to him.
His sheer relief at the peace and comfort he found there meant he was concerned for others in the same position as him, knowing the impact the coronavirus pandemic was having on charities.
When he knew that hospices beds were at risk of closing, Terry wanted to help.
Sadly Terry recently passed away, but the compassion he felt for others lives on in the appeal we have launched in his name.
Please read Terry’s story, and you will see why we need to keep beds open for patients like him.
