Ulverston St Mary's Hospice wall of memories
Last updated at 11:14, Monday, 04 March 2013
THE Evening Mail has launched a very special way for people to record their support for our latest campaign.
Through our Reaching Out initiative we are aiming to raise £70,000 for St Mary’s Hospice, so the charity can replace its ageing fleet of vehicles.
They are essential if it is to continue providing vital end-of-life care services to people across South Cumbria and south Copeland.
The campaign has already won fantastic support from the community and the donations are starting to flow in.
But many people have also been keen to tell us their own personal stories of how the hospice has helped them and members of their family.
That is why we have created a “Wall of Memories” here on the Evening Mail website.
It is a feature that will allow you to record your own messages of support both for the campaign and the work of the hospice.

Have your say
My grandad spent his last few days in the hospice. He had cancer and Alzheimer's. Although I knew he was unlikely to live longer than a few days I had to go and say my goodbyes as I had to return to university for my final exams. I will never forget my goodbye as the staff at the hospice were amazing. My grandad was sat in a chair, very confused. He thought he wasIn the pub and asked for a beer. To my amazement the staff went awayand returned with a can of beer. My grandad was so happy and was treated with utmost dignity and individualized treatment. If I won the lottery there is no doubt I would donate towards the upkeep of the hospice. Everyone deserves a dignified death and the hospice certainly enables this.This was in 1995 and I am still eternally grateful for all the work of the hospice. When people mentioned my grandad was going into the hospice I was filled with dread but now I know what a special place it is. Thank you x
