Joyce Richardson, a much-loved member of the Lynx Fuels Family has taken it upon herself to raise money for the amazing Herriot Hospice Homecare by completing 100 'stand ups' before her 100th birthday!
Joyce who served in the Women’s Land Army during World War Two has decided to put all her strength into this new fundraising campaign, supporting a charity close to her heart.
Herriot Hospice Homecare have played a big part in Joyce’s life providing wonderful support for her son Gill and family last year. Therefore, she wanted to raise money to help the charity support other individuals and families in similar circumstances.
Last year Joyce lost the use of her legs after a stint in hospital when she was suffering from sepsis. However, after several setbacks she's been slowly regaining her strength and has decided that with her 100th birthday coming up this would be the perfect time for a challenge.
The ‘Stand up’ fundraising began a couple of weeks ago with Joyce’s aim to do 100 stand ups for a minimum of 10 seconds before her birthday on June 2nd, 2020. She originally set out to raise £1000 for this wonderful cause but since the fundraising started, she has raised over £10,000 with new donations coming in by the minute.
The team here at Lynx Fuels would like to offer our full support to Joyce and wish her all the best in completing her challenge, we are all right behind her!
