Emma, who has been a member of the club for four years, will lead members in fundraising for the charity throughout next year.

"The care he and the rest of my family received was something we will be forever grateful for."

Nilesh Patel, senior community fundraiser at Thorpe Hall Hospice, said: "We look forward to hearing about your fantastic fundraising over the coming months.

"It costs us £9,000 a day to run our services and be there when it matters for local families.

"We couldn't do that without the kind help and support of our local community and people like Emma.

"If you are thinking about fundraising, please do pick up the phone and get in touch; we'd love to support you every step of the way and help you to achieve your fundraising goals."
