Dawn Marie Bailey Pay for a Day: 18 October 2022
At 43 years old, Dawn was living her best life. She had moved into a new home with her fiancé David and daughter Ruby in September 2021, their first home together. She announced her engagement to David in November 2021. The future looked bright. Dawn told us that she and David wouldn’t be getting married for some years yet, they were not going to rush things.
Celebrating my 8th birthday by Paying for a Day in memory of Dad
"Nathan, and our cousin Helen, took part in the 1-mile ‘Run Like A Legend’ race at Durham City Run Festival. Nathan chose to run his race for St Cuthbert’s to ‘repay them for their kindness’ in looking after his Dad. He completed the race in 10m 39sec. Thanks to our generous family, friends, and even people we have never met before, he raised over £1,600 for the Hospice."

“I never imagined I would lose my sister at the young age of 43. Dawn was a bright and colourful person who had a natural skill at making, and maintaining, hundreds of friendships."
In Memory of Susan Laing
Thursday 24th March 2022. "We decided to Pay for a Day of care in memory of Mum on the 24th March. This is the anniversary of my Mum’s death. It means that on this day we can remember my mum in a special way and know that we are helping another family like mine receive the same fantastic care we did.”
In Memory of Catherine Groves
Friday 11th March 2022 “On 20th December 2018, my wonderful wife Catherine lost her brave fight against Breast Cancer. She spent her final weeks in St Cuthbert's Hospice in Durham, a place that means so much to my family as they gave the most amazing, end of life care to Catherine before she passed away. Our children were only 5yrs (Ethan) and 3yrs (Kara) when mummy became a star in the sky.”
17th January 2022. "Today would have been mum's 55th birthday. We all miss her & think about her a lot. And as a family, we think it fitting that some of the money we raised in her memory is to be spent to pay for today's care at St Cuthbert's.”
