The staff at Southern Area Hospice have been overwhelmed by the community support and have decided to undergo their own challenge.
They have set themselves the challenge of collectively walking from Dawn to Dusk around the hospice building on Friday, July 17.
Throughout Covid-19 the Hospice has remained open with the staff continuing to provide 24 hour care.
As a testament to this, staff members will each walk for 1 hour continuously from Dawn to Dusk.
The Hospice has always received outstanding support from the local community, and now they feel it is time to collectively challenge themselves as a fundraiser to help alleviate the shortfall from cancelled events. If you wish to support Hospice staff, you can do so by donating on the Just Giving link here.
