Why I Fundraise

Dani has been supporting Peace Hospice Care since 2019 by fundraising in memory of Pete, the father of her best friend, who was cared for in our Inpatient Unit in 2018.

“Pete was the father of my best friend.  He was kind, generous, funny and was loved by all who knew him.  He was a keen cyclist, who had a passion for technology, rugby and beer. Pete was diagnosed with cancer in and after a long and brave battle, in Autumn 2018 he took a turn for the worst and was admitted into Peace Hospice Care’s Inpatient Unit where he stayed for about a week before he passed away.

The support given to Pete’s family during such a difficult time was amazing and they will always be so grateful to the Hospice. The nurses and staff in the Unit provided such amazing care with the utmost kindness, sensitivity and love to Pete and his family through the hardest of times.

We wanted to give something back to the Hospice and in 2019 we took part in the London Bridges Walk to raise money. Due to COVID-19, the event was cancelled in 2020 so I wanted to do something else to raise money instead. During the first lockdown in 2020 I was able to start my own business, Brown Box Bakes, and was determined to use my work to support the Hospice. So, instead of taking part in the Walk to raise money, I decided to bake a special brownie to sell for a few weeks with all proceeds donated to the Hospice. I created Pete’s Brownie which was made up of all of his personal favourite chocolates. It’s a very special cause and something close to lots of people’s hearts.

I love helping other people and seeing how much it means to them – I would love to do more in the future to help raise money for the Hospice.”
