Grandmother of three Sue Dawe is at the top of Queenscourt’s To The Moon And Back leader board, having raised £985 in just two weeks.
Sue signed up to our fundraiser, which asks supporters to do some form of exercise for an hour a day, or walk 10,000 steps, every day of September and has excelled herself.
Despite suffering some pain due to stenosis of the spine, Sue walked or jogged 95,944 steps in the first week and 98,602 in the second and aims to continue increasing her step count each week.
Sue first got involved with Queenscourt in 2014 when she was head of hairdressing at Southport College. After holding fundraising events, Sue and some of her students visited the hospice.
Then, in 2018, Sue’s dad John Jacques was diagnosed with late-stage cancer and was cared for at home by the Queenscourt team until he died.
“Queenscourt at Home nurses looked after dad and also checked that we had everything we needed,” said Sue. “What impressed me most was that it wasn’t all about dad, they were just as concerned about my mum and making sure that she was being looked after.
“While mum had her family around her, it is reassuring to know that anyone without immediate family support, can rely on Queenscourt.”
