Derek, a training manager for the NHS at Wythenshawe Hospital, spent his last few days as a patient at our hospice site in Little Hulton.
Fellow walkers donated £840 to us as a thank you for caring for Derek who married long-term partner David Rhodes at their home 11 days before he died.
Derek loved his walking and we thought it'd be a nice idea to plant a tree in his honour near the mere in Tatton Park on one of our walks. We also wanted to thank St Ann's for the amazing care they provided. That meant so much, especially after he had suffered so much with illness during the last two years of his life. David Rhodes
