This March we want you to achieve something special and pledge to walk 40 miles in a single month to support the hospice as we sign off our 40th anniversary year in style!

All our services are free of charge, but it costs £24,658 a day to run them.  So we need incredible supporters like you to come together and go the distance by joining the 40 Mile March.

Here is what to do:

  • Sign up today
  • Set a challenge for your whole class to complete 40 miles in March (you can walk, run, cycle, skip – whatever you like!)
  • Get everyone to add their names to our Pledge Sheet and then monitor your progress using our simple Distance Tracker
  • Start raising sponsorship through your friends and family
  • Get started on 1st March and have fun notching up the miles one-by-one
  • Once you’ve completed your challenge – you can pay in all your donations here

You can make it as competitive as you like but most importantly, have fun!

Sign up today!
