Team story

[p]As you all know, Mum and Dad passed away last year at Sue Ryder. From the the very beginning of their care, until now when I just pop up there for comfort and a chat, they have been outstanding. [/p][p]Last year I did the Ball, but this year myself and David have decided to push our boundaries. We haven't decided whether that is because we are getting old, or just going crazy!!![/p][p]We have listed below where your donations go to, to give you an idea of the huge costs Sue Ryder have on a daily basis.[/p][lt]div class="gmail_default" style="color: #333333; font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100%;"[gt]£5 could provide a memory box for a bereaved child.
