Take on a challenge to help us celebrate our 40th anniversary

It’s our birthday and we want as many people as possibly to join us and celebrate 40 years together!

We’re only here and able to provide specialist end of life care thanks to people like you; local people who take on brave challenges to help raise vital fund for the hospice. So, if you haven’t thought about taking on a challenge before, or have thought about it and not got any further than that, we’re appealing to you to join with others across the local community and collectively tick everything off of our list.

There are plenty of options in there for everyone. If you’re feeling like taking on an international challenge then we’ve got mountains to climb, deserts to trek and terrain to cycle through. If you’d like to stay in good old Blighty but still want to challenge yourself then why not tackle the London Marathon, swim the Thames (you don’t really have to get in the Thames) or take on the three peaks challenge.

If that all sounds a bit daunting then our 40/40 booklet has plenty of other options including a number of hospice events you can take part in, volunteering opportunities and events you can organise with a group of friends.

What will you choose to do to celebrate with us in 2020?

Whatever you do, it’ll be great to have you involved. With everyone doing their own little bit, collectively we can raise the £9million a year it takes to run the hospice and help people like the Watkins family.

“We had hoped to take the children to Disneyland but Lorna became too unwell for it to happen so the family support team put on a Disney themed party for the children. It all meant so much. We couldn’t have asked for more.” Graeme Watkins, Lorna’s husband.
