THE husband of a singer who raised money for a hospice has thanked the charity for the care it gave her, which enabled her to perform at fundraising events during her cancer fight.

Amanda Findlow from Tring, who passed away on Sunday, January 29, was a singer with Mr Kite’s Benefit Band and performed at Pepper Concerts to raise funds for Iain Rennie Hospice at Home and The Pepper Nurses.

During her 17 years volunteering for the band she helped it raise more than £75,000 to provide hospice at home services for adults and children in the area.

The 40-year-old was able to continue performing at benefit gigs while suffering with liver cancer because of the care she received from the Iain Rennie nurses.

Her husband Stuart said: “I will always be indebted to Iain Rennie. Together with Amanda, it will have a special place in my heart and memories.

“Amanda wanted to help people who were less fortunate and towards the end, singing at a gig for her was like running a marathon but she knew it mattered to raise the money for the charity and that’s what drove her on.”
