AS PART of our special fundraising year for Prospect Hospice, we want to hear from you about how the charity has helped you, your friends or family.

We will be printing a special Prospect Hospice supplement on May 16, which we want to fill with stories from our readers about the amazing work that the hospice does.

Prospect might currently be helping you on a daily basis, or maybe they are helping a relative at the moment.

Perhaps they cared for your dad, husband, mum, uncle or best friend before they passed away a few weeks, months or years ago.

However Prospect Hospice has helped you, we want to hear about it, and we also want to help give the Prospect staff the praise they truly deserve.

Earlier this year, the Adver launched one of its most ambitious campaigns to date in a bid to raise £160,000 by December in aid of Prospect Hospice – a charity which has touched thousands of terminally-ill patients in their final moments.

Throughout the year along with activists, fundraisers and the support of the community the Adver is striving to collect the mammoth sum desperately needed by the Wroughton charity, which must secure £5.8 million each year to continue caring for the people of Swindon and North Wiltshire.

We hope that by printing this supplement on May 16, more people will be encouraged to donate money to this worthy cause.

If you would like to share your story, contact Adver writer Emma Dunn on 01793 501797 or email with a brief description of how Prospect Hospice has helped you.

We loook forward to hearing from you.
