Hospice seeks sup­port for Chal­lenge 55

Midweek Visiter - - St Joseph’s Hospice -

IT’S our 55th an­niver­sary year so we’ve set you a chal­lenge! Could you run or cy­cle around our beau­ti­ful hospice grounds in Thorn­ton or, if swim­ming’s more your thing, take on our pool chal­lenge – all on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 1.

You can choose whether you’d like to run 5.5 miles, cy­cle 55 miles or swim 55 lengths? Bet­ter still, you could take on the ul­ti­mate chal­lenge and do all three in our Chal­lenge 55 Triathlon!

By tak­ing part, you will be part of our 55th an­niver­sary legacy as we try to raise £55,000 to help us to care for even more peo­ple through a wider range of sup­port and clin­i­cal ser­vices over the next 55 years.

Get your col­leagues, friends and fam­ily in­volved, sign up on­line at www. jospice.org.uk and get fundrais­ing via our www.just­giv­ing.com Chal­lenge 55 page.

Julie McAdam, se­nior com­mu­nity fundraiser at St Joseph’s Hospice, said: “As a lo­cal char­ity, which pro­vides end-of-life nurs­ing care to over 200 peo­ple every year, we need to raise £8,750 every sin­gle day.

“Dur­ing our spe­cial 55th Emer­ald An­niver­sary year, we’re ap­peal­ing to our lo­cal com­mu­nity and lo­cal busi­nesses to sup­port us so we can con­tinue pro­vid­ing this spe­cial­ist care for the next 55 years.
