Dedicate your medal in memory of a loved one

Every medal tells a story.

We know that many of our supporters take on a challenge in memory of their loved one who meant so much to them, and to say thank you to the hospice for the care their loved one received at the most difficult time.

This year, we would love to give everyone who takes on a challenge the opportunity to display their medal at the hospice and to share their story.

We want to celebrate the achievements of our fabulous supporters, thank them for their fundraising efforts and most importantly, pay tribute to their loved one.

We took inspiration from supporter Matthew Pemrick who dedicated his Ironman medal to the nurses at the hospice in memory of his Mum Kath Pemrick.  It meant so much to our nurses to hear Matthew had dedicated his medal and they loved hearing about the epic challenge he took on to help raise funds for the hospice.

Would you like to dedicate your medal? Get in touch with our fundraising team at fundraising@boltonhospice.org
