Fraser’s Story

One of our fantastic supporters, Fraser Oliver, who is taking on a triathlon for us, was in the top 3% of fundraisers on the whole of JustGiving for the month of May 2019! Congratulations to Fraser on this amazing achievement.

Here is Fraser’s story:

“As many of you that are reading this may know, last year I lost my father. A heart shattering event, that I never expected to deal with in my 20’s. He was a fit and healthy 54 year old, whom I cherished as a best mate and spent much of my spare time going on holidays and adventures with.

He fought a short, stoic battle with an extremely rare and aggressive cancer. So short in fact, that we had very little opportunity to get anything in place or planned for when the unimaginable happened. Fortunately for us, the incredible St Barnabas Hospice exists.

On the 30th of June 2018, he suddenly deteriorated and we were informed that he had hours to live. Knowing he would have hated to pass away in the chaos of A&E. The inspiring staff at St Barnabas went out of their way to accept him and offer all of us the peace and space we needed to let him graciously leave us.

For this, my family and I will be forever grateful and want to do anything we can to give something back. Starting with a little triathlon.

Anything you can give will be greatly received by the organisation and the people and families that they will support now and in the future.”

We’d like to say a huge thank you to Fraser! Support his triathlon on JustGiving here and help him reach his fundraising goal for St Barnabas: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/fraser-oliver
