St Mary's Hospice @stmaryshospice
Gary Smedley bravely took a New Year’s Day Dip on behalf of our hospice! Dressed suitably in a diving suit and snorkel Gary jumped in accompanied by lots of wet and dry supporters!! Gary has been doing this for seven years, boosting funds for all sorts of worthwhile causes. Gary said: “What better cause than St Mary’s? And it doesn’t cost you anything! We were overwhelmed at the people who came out to support us with at least ten people jumping in too!”
Gary supported by his partner Alison Rigg raised a splash-tastic £541! This will be split between hospice care and specifically going to Christmas lighting for our Inpatient Unit. Gary has been invited back to St Mary’s later in the year to see the wonderful impact of his fundraising. We will keep you posted …. Also watch out for Gary taking part in Coniston to Barrow as a red squirrel inspired by our surroundings and growing up and locally to the Hoad.
Thank you to Gary and Alison for your wonderful support.
