Meet Our 100 Heroes

Betsy Turnbull

Danielle Beverley and Jaxon Beverley
Danielle Beverley and her son Jaxon, aged 5 are going to do 30 star jumps a day for 100 days. Danielle said: “Jaxon is obsessed with Spiderman and going out on his electric motorbike, he's a massive daddy’s boy. I am 35, own my own recruitment business and my boys are my life. I have a stepson called Harrison, aged 9 and 16-month-old Jenson. We love raising money for charity and Jaxon often donates toys and clothes to less fortunate children.”
Margaret Matwiejew
Margaret Matwiejew is taking part in our 100 Heroes campaign to support May Shipperbottom and Bury Hospice. She said: “It’s easy to support May Shipperbottom and Bury Hospice with this challenge. 100 days of less chocolate so the Hospice will achieve the challenge easily. We are so lucky to have Bury Hospice on our doorstep for patients and their families and friends going through a very difficult time. I have great respect for them.”
May Shipperbottom
May Shipperbottom, a huge supporter of Bury Hospice was the first person to sign up! Bury Hospice is so lucky to have such dedicated, committed and loyal supporters like May who really are at the heart of our organisation. May is supporting our 100 Heroes campaign by organising an Easter family night on Friday, April 1st at Holcombe Brook Sports & Tennis Club.
Nick Snape

Sophie Kyle
Sophie Kyle is the owner of a small business called Sophie’s Sweet Temptations based in the Radcliffe area. She said: “I am raising £100 (hopefully more) for the Hospice as this is a charity close to home. I know family and friends who have always turned to the Hospice. This is just a charity I love to support and have done for years and years as I know how much work these amazing, wonderful staff do to provide the best care for their patients. Please support me to raise £100 by engaging on my Facebook page Sophie’s Sweet Temptations and playing my raffles to raise money for this outstanding charity.”
Susan Sawbridge
Susan Sawbridge is taking part in our 100 Heroes campaign to raise funds in memory of her sister, Shouna Howe. Shouna died in Bury Hospice in April 2017. Susan said: “Shouna was a keen runner and continues to inspire me and it, therefore, seems fitting to embark on this challenge to run 400km in 100 days, starting on what would have been her 50th birthday.”
Ummrana Farooq

Ummrana Farooq works for the NHS at Fairfield General Hospital in Bury as an A&E receptionist. She is the elected local East ward Councillor where Bury Hospice is situated, Deputy Cabinet Member for Communities and the founder of the local charitable community group The B.A.M.E Project. Ummrana said: “I wish to do the 100 Heroes challenge by doing 10,000 steps a day. Currently, I do up to 5,000 steps. I wish to push myself for this good cause with Bury Hospice and double the amount and raise over £100. I understand the importance of end of life care from working with unpaid carers and from my personal experience of losing my parents whom I wish to dedicate this challenge to, once completed.”
