A huge congratulations to Principle BIM Manager Graham Butler and family for completing the ‘Walk the Wight’ at the weekend to fundraise for Mountbatten Hospice.

The walk helps support patients and families cared for by Mountbatten, to help provide 24/7 expert care and support for free to thousands of local people across the Island.

Graham shares:

“Having put my body through its paces on Sunday, I’m pleased to say after 11 hours of solid walking, I can tick Walk the Wight off the bucket list!
“As a family, we managed to raise over £2,500 for Mountbatten Hospice. There were over 9,500 walkers, and in total, the hospice managed to raise over £440,000. 26 miles felt a lot longer with a lot of steep climbs and rough terrain, but met with some spectacular views once up on higher ground towards the end!
“A massive thankyou to all those at Waldeck and Morson Projects for supporting me, and everyone else who has donated and helped me and my family navigate a difficult journey over the past year.”

Everyone’s generosity will help give free bereavement and psychological support to anyone who needs it and help those with life-limiting conditions to live well during the last years of their life by providing rehabilitation and enablement services, art and music therapy, and a social programme.

It costs £10.5 million every year to run Mountbatten’s services. Only a third of this money comes from the NHS – the rest comes from fundraising like the event Graham has just completed.
