In August 2019, we sadly lost my mum, Sally, to a brain tumour after a tough 11 months of fighting.
In her final weeks, she needed full time care, so she was admitted to ACCORD Hospice in Paisley.
The hospice provided a home away from home for Mum. The atmosphere around the centre is one of comfort, and the staff were remarkable, making her feel comfortable at all times, and just like one of the girls.
We honestly can’t thank the Hospice enough for everything that they did for my mum. They really helped bring quality to the final moments of her life, and we can’t thank them enough for that.
We are now fundraising to help raise money for ACCORD, which will allow them to continue the amazing work they do. We choose to take on Tough Mudder as my mum always challenged herself to do better in life. Doing Tough Mudder will challenge us both physically and mentally.
We have also arranged a Charity Golf Day at Largs Golf Club named the Mustang Sally Memorial. All proceeds raised will be donated to the ACCORD Hospice to allow them to continue their fantastic work.
Good luck to Stewart and Chloe who are taking on Tough Mudder this weekend!
Nora took part in This Is Your Life with Accord Zoom recently. We all enjoyed hearing about such a varied life and thought it should be heard. Nora has a phenomenal memory and many stories, this is just a snapshot.Read more
