In 2023, Jodie's challenged herself to run the ABP Half-Marathon for the second time, in support of Mountbatten Hampshire, after her dad was cared for by our inpatient team.

"From the moment Dad was admitted into the hospice, everyone who cared for him was absolutely amazing and made his final days dignified and comfortable."

"The staff also took care of us and nothing was too much trouble. They offered us food and drink and made beds up for us.

“I was shocked to learn only about a third of Mountbatten’s funding comes from the NHS, with the rest fundraised, so really want to do my bit to help."

Jodie calculated that her dad’s time in the hospice would have cost around £2000. She set herself a goal to raise as much as possible to give back to the teams that helped her family.

"They made Dad's final days dignified and comfortable."

“I couldn’t do what they do, but we were able to cover the cost of his care which was so important to me."

“It’s about raising awareness, too. Most people don't know that without donations from the public, there would be a massive shortfall, and they wouldn't be able to continue to offer the same level of care they do."

She hopes that with what she’s achieved and running the half-marathon again this year, she will help ensure our care reaches more people who need it.

With your support, more people will face death, dying, and bereavement with Mountbatten by their side.
