Major Mick makes momentous milestone

Major Mick has rowed his way into the hearts of many with his 100-mile ‘Tintanic’ challenge for St Wilfrid’s Hospice, raising over £22,500 so far.

This represents the entire running costs required to fund the Hospices’ services for a single day.

The 80-year-old retired ex-Major remarked, “Absolutely astounded to meet this wonderful milestone. The work of the Hospice is more vital now than ever!”

As he nears the halfway mark of his challenge, Chief Executive for St Wilfrid’s Hospice shared this thank you message.

Alison said, “We are deeply grateful to Major Mick for his wonderful 100-mile ‘Tintanic’ challenge in support of St Wilfrid’s Hospice.

At any one time we are supporting 330 patients, here at our beautiful purpose built Hospice in Bosham, and the majority actually in their own homes. Many of whom have been comforted to see Major Mick’s story.

The fundraising and awareness he builds for the vital work of the Hospice in these challenging times is a timely reminder we can all do something to make a difference to local lives.”
