Your year, your challenge, your hospice

As we look to the future and 2021 we know things may not be ‘back to normal’ for a while. We have created a catalogue of challenges for you to choose from that can all be completed no matter what restrictions we face.

Each month, pick your challenge. We have some suggestions but it’s up to you, you can even make up your very own. Once you have selected your challenge, start telling your friends and family about it! Each challenge is free to register, to support the hospice we are asking that you raise a minimum sponsorship of £21 for each challenge you complete.

Your £21 could pay towards the cost of an hours support over the phone to a patient and their family during the Coronavirus pandemic.
