The Hospice held their first mass participation event, ‘Walk Your Ridgeway’ earlier this summer, following months of lockdown. There were 250 fantastic supporters on the day and a HUGE £54K raised for the Hospice – an outstanding amount!
We rely on community fundraising, to help fund the £5 million needed each year to provide our free care. By supporting the Hospice, you are helping us to help more people in the local community to feel safe and supported through a life-limiting illness and to live their precious life well.
