A MUM of two has sung her heart out to save the hospice that cared for her music-loving mum.

Abby Mansi used Facebook live to do Prospect Hospice’s 2.6 challenge by singing 26 songs.

Her mum Christine was a keen singer and years ago the family made a CD to raise money for the much-loved facility.

It was there that she died from lung and bowel cancer in 2017.

Abby, 31, of Gorse Hill said: “My mum had always been a singer, not professionally, but she loved it.

"As a family we made a CD many years ago which we sold to raise money for the Prospect Hospice, not knowing they would end up looking after her.

“The condition sadly took away her voice, so eventually she couldn’t sing at all. I just know that she felt at home at the hospice so I think it was the best place for her to pass on.”

Last week the hospice launched an urgent appeal to plug a £2m funding gap after the pandemic resulted in the loss of normal funding sources like events and charity shops.

The 2.6 challenge is an alternative and usually involves getting people to complete 2.6 miles by running or walking, or doing 26 minutes of another physical activity.

Abby decided do 26 songs instead with help from sons Toby, five and Hugo, seven.

And on her last night she sang Evergreen by Barbara Streisand with her dad because it was the first dance at her parents' wedding.
