Speaking about her role, she added: "It’s a great honour to be there for someone at that point in their life and offer that reassurance and support."

Sylvia Thomas, who heads the hospice at home team, said: "We couldn't reach all the people that need us without the support of businesses and individuals in our local community generously donating and fundraising for us."

Claire Myers, head of CSR and sponsorships at Invesco, said: "We have supported the charity, in various ways, since 2007 and are delighted to be able to extend our sponsorship by another year, so nurses like Lindsey can continue to be there when it matters."
