Denise has been using the Time for You service and receiving physiotherapy and complementary therapy.

She said: “I finished my chemo in April 2017, and I am getting fitter every day. My cancer is not curable, but I am well now and intend to stay well.

“My family and friends have supported me throughout my treatment and along with the rest of Team Tiger Feet, I am so grateful for their sponsorship for the Midnight Beach Walk.”

The hospice, in Uphill, supports people with life-limiting conditions.
