Get your run­ning shoes on to raise money for hos­pice

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

SOUTH Bucks Hos­pice is ap­peal­ing to the won­der­ful Buck­ing­hamshire com­mu­nity to don ly­cra, lace up run­ning shoes and take on a chal­lenge this sum­mer in sup­port of the hos­pice.

As the warm weather draws in – or oc­ca­sion­ally draws in, fol­lowed by the in­evitable hail­stone and rain­forest­wor­thy down­pours – we are notic­ing more and more peo­ple run­ning and cy­cling past our hos­pice and we would be de­lighted if the fit­ness fa­natic within our sup­port­ers would en­ter one of the many fan­tas­tic chal­lenge events planned in Buck­ing­hamshire across the sum­mer.

There is some­thing go­ing on for ev­ery­one over the next few months so whether peo­ple are al­ready juic­ing greens for break­fast and run 10k a day or their idea of be­ing ac­tive is walk­ing to their lo­cal for a Pimm’s in the sun, we’d love to have fundrais­ers on board Team South Bucks Hos­pice, get­ting spon­sored to take part in a chal­lenge.

As well

as

those

want­ing

to

chal­lenge them­selves phys­i­cally by en­ter­ing a marathon or triathlon, we have seen some take on per­sonal chal­lenges alone.

This year, a won­der­ful gen­tle­man known as Pi­rate will be do­ing his own spon­sored slim. His hopes? To lose more than seven stone and raise vi­tal funds in sup­port of our hos­pice.

Pi­rate works at our South Bucks Hos­pice Re­Use cen­tre in Booker, and is call­ing for peo­ple to join him in his spon­sored slim and shed the pounds in aid of the hos­pice.

Pi­rate said: “I started a Slim­ming World pro­gramme a month ago and have al­ready lost a stone, so if I can do it, any­one can!

“It’d be great to see the com­mu­nity come to­gether and join me in my chal­lenge.”

Any­one who would like more in­for­ma­tion on tak­ing part in a lo­cal chal­lenge event or join­ing Pi­rate in his spon­sored slim, can con­tact Rose Fin­ni­gan on 01494 464045 or email Rose. Fin­ni­gan@sb­hos­pice.org.uk.
