This is why we provide education and development opportunities, all of which aim to encourage learning and build confidence in end of life care and support.
Whether shopping with us in person or online, or donating your pre-loved goods, we thank you for supporting us through our shops where you help to raise around £2million a year for Prospect Hospice.
We pride ourselves on being a great place to work and we're always looking for outstanding people to join our team at the hospice across all areas of the charity.
A local charity has launched their first ‘Ironman Triathlon’ and is challenging the community to run 26.2 miles, cycle 100 miles and swim 2.4 miles by the end of the year to raise vital funds to care for people with a life-limiting illness.
The Prospect Hospice Ironman Triathlon kicks off on 1 October and if you want to physically challenge yourself, you can do the whole distance in one go or spread the distance over several months as part of the hospice’s ‘Your Way’ events.
The charity’s ‘Your Way’ marathon, cycle and swim events allow participants to take part in a series of tough challenges to push themselves and raise money for the charity which recently announced it would need to raise £2million to cover the cost of their financial losses because of Covid-19. The events take place over three months, and you can choose to take part in just one of those events if you wish or you can register for all three as part of the Ironman triathlon.
All participants have the freedom to complete the set of distances for running, cycling and swimming in their own time and at their own pace from anywhere in the UK, and completed miles can be tracked using Strava or a similar app.
Prospect Hospice’s event and community manager, Amy Francombe said: “Taking part in any of the events is a fantastic opportunity to test your fitness whilst raising vital funds to help support us. Every donation, however large or small, will allow us to continue caring for patients and their families at one of the most difficult times in their lives and ensure that the hospice also continues to strive during this global pandemic.”
To celebrate reaching these milestones and for raising funds for Prospect Hospice, everyone who completes the Ironman triathlon will be awarded a medal in celebration of their achievement.
