Sophie Tillotson, 35, and her daughter Willow, 7, from Luton are asking everyone to walk, run or dance their way through
eight scented bubble stations at Keech Hospice Care’s Bubble Rush this June.
The Tillotson men, both named Alan, were supported by Keech Hospice Care, which cares for adults in Luton and south Bedfordshire and children in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Milton Keynes, until they both died in 2018.
Sophie says the charity has been there for them through their hardest times.
“Last year was really tough for our family as both my dad, 74, and brother, 39, died of liver cancer within just six weeks of each other in the summer,” said Sophie.
“But the staff at Keech Hospice Care were there for us before my dad and brother died and they’re still here now whenever we need them.
“My brother made me promise we’d continue to help Keech Hospice Care in any way we could so when we heard about Bubble Rush, we knew we had to do it. It’s a great event we can do together as a family. Willow can’t wait,” said Sophie.
Lynn Russell, Events Fundraiser at Keech Hospice Care, added: “We’ve got bubble cannons pumping out 4ft of multi-coloured frothy fun, obstacles, and even an after party! As a charity, we depend on 70 per cent of the funding for our care to come from the community, so please sign up today,” said Lynn.
