SPONSOR ME PLEASE in St Michael’s Hospice Wheelie Big Cycle

May 21, 2013

written by Vicki Bale


Dr Chris Roberts 1941-2013


I am planning to do a 60 mile sponsored cycle on 21st July, raising money for St Michael’s hospice, near Hereford, in memory of my brother-in-law, Dr Chris Roberts who died on 18th May 2013.

He was one of those really special people, a gentleman, whose first thoughts were always for others. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends. I promised him I would raise some money for the hospice who had cared for him so well, both as a day patient and in the days up to his end. Many people will know Chris as he was a doctor at Sarum House, Hereford for over 30 years. If he was your GP, then you were lucky!

I had never been in a hospice until last week. What a wonderful place it was. They made his passing dignified and peaceful and allowed all the family to be at his bedside. We were given cups of tea and made most welcome by the lovely staff and volunteers. He had also been cared for as a day patient which had been very helpful in helping him come to terms with his terrible illness. My sister has also been grateful for the assistance provided by the hospice. Massages, support groups and counselling are all part of the help they provide.

St Michael’s Hospice provides quality, individualised care to patients who have progressive, life-limiting illnesses and supports their carers and families. It will cost £4.2 million to run the Hospice this year and we need to raise almost £4 million of that amount.

Please give generously in memory of Chris, or anyone you know who has been in the care of a hospice.
