Let's get this built !

Hi - I'm Mike Bridge - known by many simply as Bridgey.

On the 5th June 2018, life changed for my family when I was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The average life expectancy I was told  was just 12 months. 

Pretty devastating stuff !

I have decided to do two things, whilst I can. Firstly, I am participating in a medical trial which for sure gives me some hope but just as importantly will help a better understanding of my condition for others. If this saves someone else - that would be just brilliant.

Secondly, and the purpose of my fund raising efforts is to try to raise as much money to support the opening of a Hospice in Winchester.

See www.winchesterhospice.com

The appeal has raised close to £1m of the £2.5m needed to provide the dignity, support and care that end of life patients deserve. It will also act as a hub for palliative care services in the local area. Currently people have to travel some distance which adds to the burden at the most critical of times.

A great team of people are trying to get this project completed for 2019 and I am proud to be acting as an Ambassador on their behalf.

My competitive spirit would just love to be able to hit my fundraising goal and to be able to be a part of a local success story.

Thank you for reading my story and, I hope, for your generosity in making this happen.

Lets get this built !
