Good luck to Emma Ross who will be running Cheltenham's Half Marathon this time next week 👍 Emma, who grew up in Badsey, near Evesham, is running in memory of her mum Caroline, who was cared for by St Richard's.

She said: "The support at the hospice in that final week was amazing. She was given medication to help her feel comfortable and dad was able to stay over. On the In-patient unit the staff were so caring and had a good laugh with mum – they knew she was having a bad day if she hadn't put her lippy on!

"I know that dad really appreciated the nurses’ support and since mum's death he has attended the cooking course. Considering this is a charity – St Richard’s is amazing.”
