City Hospice invites you to take part in a night time walk to remember loved ones and help raise funds for patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

Husband Nic Patterson

This year we look forward to lighting up the night and amongst those supporters, Jane Patterson will be back attending her second Sparkle Walk accompanied by good friend Lou, in memory of her husband Nic. Jane has been an active supporter of City Hospice, during our Forever Flowers campaign, Jane bought 24 flowers alongside badges for her classroom at Cathedral School.

Jane told us

“This will be our second Sparkle Walk, I’d like to acknowledge how wonderful the staff at City Hospice are. My wonderful husband, Nic was diagnosed with a brain tumour in March 2020. Nic battled the tumour for 13 months but very sadly passed away in April 2021.

We had such wonderful support from the doctors & nurses at City Hospice. At first, we were both very wary of palliative care but Nurse Specialist, Catriona soon put us at ease. Cat visited often and was always available on the end of the phone. City Hospice helped us with very difficult conversations and wishes with such compassion and so caring.

Following the death of my husband, I was offered counselling from City Hospice which I found invaluable, and I will forever be grateful for. Lou and I are looking forward to this years’ Sparkle Walk, I hope we can do the walk every year”. 

Daisy Magill, Senior Fundraiser Coordinator said 

“We cannot thank Jane enough for her continued support. From our Forever Flowers to our Sparkle Walk, seeing returning faces reminds us of how special these events are to the community. We look forward to seeing you on the night!”
