Support YOUR Hospice

This is an amazing chance to explore a beautiful country and its many wonders while raising money to support your local hospice.

St John’s Hospice continued to operate throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, delivering its vital services throughout the communities all while not being about to operate fundraising operations as usual. Since then the hospice has continued to adapt to a very different fundraising landscape while continuing to offer outstanding care. This trek is a wonderful opportunity to challenge yourself and help keep your hospice caring!

Your hospice needs you to take up this challenge to ensure that we can continue to be there when people need us most. Like the trek, fundraising is a team effort and the St John’s Hospice fundraising team will help you every step of the way in helping secure your funds.

If you think you are up for this challenge you can sign up today. If you have any questions please get in touch, our fundraising team will be happy to help.
