Sobell House
Sobell House provides care and support to the community of Oxfordshire affected by terminal illness. At Sobell House we focus on the needs of the individual and those that love them. The service is free of charge to those that need our help regardless of their beliefs, race, age or wealth. Our care teams strive to offer dignity, peace, support and freedom from pain whilst also offering a release from the daily worries associated with terminal illness. The Charity supports Sobell House in providing palliative and end of life care to the residents of Oxfordshire. The cost of running the Hospice is well over £4 million a year, a large part of which comes from the generosity and support of local companies and individuals throughout the county. The specialist palliative care service is jointly funded by The Sobell House Charity and the Oxford Radcliffe NHS Trust Each year the charity works hard to raise the money required but we can’t do it without you!
Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. We’ve saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival has doubled over the past 40 years. We fund research into more than 200 types of cancer from the most common, such as breast, bowel, lung and prostate cancers, to rare types of tumours and children’s cancers, we support groundbreaking science that benefits everyone.

Hall 2017 Resolution

My page:

My father died of cancer on 30th May 2015. I wanted to do something significant in his memory and whilst doing so raise money for Sobell House Hospice Charity, an Oxford based palliative care hospice who looked after him so well in his final days and Cancer Research UK, a cancer research and awareness charity in the UK.

Having been inactive from a fitness perspective since 2012 when I ran the 27th Marathon Des Sables, a 250km ultra marathon across the Sahara Desert. I wanted to test my limits again and have committed to complete the following challenges:

The Isle of Wight Challenge: Many sail around it, thousands have ‘rocked’ at its festivals, and now I plan to run, walk & crawl 100km around it in April.

Completed: 21 hours 21 minutes.

No alcohol for 12 months. I have now reached month 9 and continue to stick to my commitment.

Expected duration – 8760 hours

No Social Media for 12 months. 

Expected duration - 8760 hours

Please help me get to £10,000 by the end of 2017.
