Dave and Sharon Rideout sadly lost their daughter,
Chloe to sepsis on 20th October 2018.


On Sunday 8th December 2019 her parents are hosting an Auction of Promises, in her memory, to raise funds for the Sepsis Trust at
St Michaels Resort. 

In Dave's words

"My daughter went in hospital for an appendix operation and ended up dying from Sepsis.
As you can imagine, we are totally heartbroken and struggling to understand why this has happened. We didn't know what Sepsis was and if we did Chloe would still be alive. Chloe was only 20! She was lovely and only ever thought of others.

I started my fundraising by doing a sponsored walk on Christmas day (2018) where I was joined by friends and family on the 30 mile walk from the hospital to our home. It took twelve and a half hours but we managed it (and have the blisters to prove). This auction is another chance for us to both raise awareness of Sepsis and raise funds for this vital charity. 

The Sepsis Trust visits schools, doctors and hospitals to educate and raise awareness of this problem so hopefully another young person doesn't lose their life and another family doesn't have to live the nightmare we are going through."

St Michaels is proud to provide support for this event in memory of a valued friend and colleague who is sadly missed.
