Anne Amlot is a writer and runner living in Hertfordshire with her husband and two young sons.

She witnessed the kindness and compassion provided by the Duchess of Kent Hospice in Reading, where her father spent the final few weeks of his life. Her goal is to raise funds by running the London Marathon 2018 to help others experience the warmth of this special place - whether as an outpatient, to give family some respite from their caring role, or as in-patients spending the final few days of their life there.

If the last thing any of us see is a smile, she believes, we'll leave the world at peace. Her father’s final few days were filled with smiles and warmth, thanks to the hospice and its wonderful staff and volunteers.
