Stewart Fleming has more family links with St Ann’s than most. His mum Margaret, from Bredbury, died in the hospice in January. Margaret, 64, had lung cancer.
His late grandparents Kitty and Frank were also patients here years ago.
In addition, Stewart’s wife Louise is Volunteer Manager at St Ann’s where she has worked for the last 12 years. Louise’s mum, Breda Johnson, is one of around 740 hospice volunteers
The couple are taking part in our Manchester Midnight Walk on Friday, April 26, and have already raised over £1,500 through sponsorship for the 10km city centre stroll.
St Ann's looked after Stew's mum in her final few weeks. Her biggest fear was being in pain or alone at the end and the hospice made sure she was comfortable and that we were all with her. The compassion and support was amazing and we can never thank them enough. Louise Fleming, Volunteer Manager
