Challenge yourself for your Hospice!

Your fundraising will help us provide free specialist palliative care for our patients.

This New Year, we’re asking our supporters to challenge themselves for their local Hospice. We want you to join us and pledge to take on a challenge in 2017 and raise money for Princess Alice Hospice.

johnJohn Piears pledged to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest free standing mountain in the world. Here he explains why:

“My wife Beata was just 37 years old when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She did everything she could to try to fight her illness, but she eventually ran out of options and was referred for palliative care. The care we received at Princess Alice Hospice was incredible. I decided I wanted to give something back to the Hospice for the support they gave to me and Beata. So, climbing Kilimanjaro seemed appropriate!”

philPhil Lanes pledged to abseil down the Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. He likes to take on new challenges and this is why he did it for us:

“Princess Alice Hospice is so much more than a place to die. It enables patients to live to the full, to take advantage of precious moments. I’m glad that the money raised from my challenge has meant that the Hospice can provide that care for even more local people.”

Your challenge could be in memory of a loved one, like John. Your challenge could be in support of a wonderful local cause, like Phil. Your challenge could be just that, your own challenge – pushing yourself to take on something new, try a different experience, see what you can achieve when you put your mind to it!
