In 2006 Jane Bullock joined Guildford Hockey Club. She became a likeable and integral part of the ladies 2's, helping them to secure promotion from Div 2 to Div 1 in her first season. Jane was not only an active hockey player she also offered support to the club. She obtained sponsorship for the ladies 2's from Snack a Jacks, helped out at colts training and even supplied a sound system for the club house. There are many pictures from hockey socials, fancy dress nights and do's in posh frocks! Jane was a popular lady and made many good friends for life.
Jane had no obvious signs of illness until January 2015 when she started to feel unwell and a lump in her neck appeared. At this point Jane was referred for tests and a few weeks later Jane was diagnosed with stage 4 rectal cancer.
This devastating news had been particularly difficult to absorb as Jane was only 37 and really fit and well pre-diagnosis. In December 2014 she had run a 10k race and in January 2015 Jane achieved a personal challenge of having rowed 1 million metres on her rowing machine within a year. She also enjoyed mountain biking with her lovely husband, Ed and looking after her 20 month old son, Will.
The weeks following Jane’s diagnosis were an absolute whirlwind for her and her family. Jane was under the fantastic care of the staff at the Nuffield in Guildford and the Royal Surrey County Hospital where she underwent a gruelling 6 month schedule of chemotherapy.
Jane was a truly special mummy, wife, sister, daughter, niece, aunty, cousin and friend who had so much kindness, humility, humour and life in her.
Despite a determined fight Jane passed away on the night of Thursday the 28th May 2015. To celebrate her life we have arranged a memorial hockey match to be played on Saturday 25th June 2016. Anyone who knew Jane is welcome to attend, if you would like further details please contact
