“Sue Ryder is here to make sure everyone approaching the end of their life or living with grief can get the support they need. There is no one size fits all when it comes to how we cope and the help we need, but with our support, no one has to face dying or grief alone. We are there when it matters.”
Join our official Headline Charity Partner today and help us make a positive difference during even the darkest of times. We’ll be with you every step of the way, through training and race preparation, to the biggest and loudest cheer points and post-race reception.
The end of people’s lives should be filled with treasured memories, family and friends, kindness and love. But sadly, 1 in 4 families are not able to access the end of life care they need, which means this time can be filled with uncertainty, pain and struggle instead. Together we can change this.
Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice is Gloucestershire’s only inpatient unit for specialist palliative care. Last year, Sue Ryder Nurses and Leckhampton Court Hospice provided 130,000 hours of support to patients and their families. Our palliative care is free, but it costs us £3.6m per year to provide it, which equates to £10,000 per day.
Join #TeamSueRyder because no one should face death or grief alone.

“Maggie’s in Cheltenham provides free practical, emotional, and social support for people living with cancer, their families, and friends. It is a place to find advice; to share experiences with others; or just to sit quietly with a cup of tea. For some people talking about their cancer is invaluable and can provide the support they need outside a clinical setting. For others the peer support they gain from other people is extremely important. And for some people, going to the hospital can be difficult so having somewhere comfortable to reflect can help them process news. Maggie’s provides space for all of this to happen. “
