Claire Austin-Hope


Isabel Hospice
At Isabel Hospice we care for people across Eastern Hertfordshire, who suffer from life-limiting illnesses, such as cancer and who are in the terminal stage. Our ethos is to treat the whole person, not simply their illness, and to maximise the quality of life that they have in their remaining months and weeks. Last year we cared for over 2,700 patients, family members and carers, free of charge. Our care is often described as a light in the tunnel at a very dark time. To give this free care, we need to raise over £4 million each year. Of this total, £2.7 million must be raised from charitable sources. Every penny really does count.

My page:

‘Claire – Running the London Marathon? You must be joking!' I hear you cry.

Well its true – although I can hardly believe it myself. Thirty five years ago I was walking the one and a half mile school cross-country course!

Anyway, I am embarking on this 26.2 mile personal challenge on 13th April 2014 for a wonderful charity – 'The Isabel Hospice' which is based in Welwyn Garden City and supports families and individuals throughout North and East Hertfordshire.

Over the next few months I have a lot of work to do and I would be delighted if you could support me by making a donation through my Virgin Money Giving page.

Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on behalf of the hospice where the donor is eligible for this. Donations will be quickly processed and passed to the charity..

Thank you in anticipation of your support and should you see me plodding around the streets of Hertfordshire please give me a wave and a cheer.

Warm wishes,

Claire x
