“I’m running the Torbay Half Marathon for Rowcroft because they took such care of my Nan during her last few days. After my Nan was diagnosed with cancer she went downhill rapidly. She wanted to stay at home, surrounded by her family, and the amazing Rowcroft At Home Team made this possible. They provided the physical objects we needed to care for her but alongside that they provided the most fantastic emotional support, not only to my Nan but to all the family. They were there to help every step of the way, helping to keep my Nan’s wish to stay at home. We could not have done it without their support and for that our family is very grateful. Running the half marathon for Rowcroft is a small way to raise much needed funds for the hospice and help to ensure other families can receive the same level of care and support our family received.”
