Hospice of St Francis News



From January 2018 Edition | Boxmoor Direct

We are enormously grateful to the thousands of people who ran, walked, danced, cycled or even jumped out of a plane for us last year, helping to raise the over £5million we need each year to deliver care for more than 2,000 people affected by life-limiting illness. Without them we wouldn’t be able to  continue to provide care and support for patients and families who need us.

Challenge yourself in 2018!
The Hospice fundraising team has lots of opportunities for people who want to do something amazing in the New Year and help the Hospice raise the money it needs each year to fund its free care. You could….

Hospice st francis give up to give back
Give Up 2 Give Back!
Feeling as stuffed as the Christmas turkey after overdoing it on the mince pies and mulled wine? If you need some motivation to get back into shape after spending too long on the sofa over the festive season, why not start the New Year by giving something up to give back to a good cause?
Take a break from your daily takeaway coffee, say no to your nightly glass of wine or pledge to forego any chocolate treats during this month-long campaign – and give back what you’ve saved to support The Hospice of St Francis.

Hospice st francis trek to sahara
Join our Trek to the Sahara
Make 2018 the year you step out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself for charity. We’re looking for intrepid adventurers to join our next fundraising trek to the Sahara from 10th - 17th November. The week-long trek will involve trekking 30km across sand dunes and sun-baked plains before setting up camp for the night and sleeping under the stars. It will end with a two-day community project in Marrakech helping to improve conditions at a local centre for street children, a medical day clinic or a home for the elderly.
Jan Hill, 59, from Boxmoor, who took part in the Hospice’s Trek to Nepal in October 2015, said: “I wanted to achieve the challenge physically and raise money to enable the Hospice’s vital care to continue. It was an experience of a lifetime and difficult to put into words. The trek team spirit was so strong and we will be friends for life.”
