The Hospice to Hospice Walk is back

Date published: 08 February 2019

This week Springhill Hospice launches their 13th annual Hospice to Hospice Walk. On Sunday 28 April, eager walkers are being asked to join in the fun of the Hospice’s annual Hospice to Hospice walk.

The circular walk will give you, your family, friends and even your pets the chance to take part, have fun and raise money for the Hospice along the way.

The walk will begin at Springhill Hospice on Broad Lane, where the 7.25 mile round trip (that’s a massive 15,000 steps) will take its walkers over to Dr Kershaw’s Hospice in Oldham.

Walkers will be able to rest their feet, have a brew and a chat at Dr Kershaw’s before making the trip back to Springhill where they will complete the walk and be presented with a commemorative medal, certificate and a well-earned rest.

Springhill’s Events and Campaigns Fundraiser Rebekah Cheshire said “Our Hospice to Hospice Walk is one of our larger annual events and every year it continues to grow.

“We are very much looking forward to welcoming our fabulous supporters to take on this challenge to celebrate our 30th Anniversary year.”

The walk welcomes everyone from the seasoned walker to those who want to take in the views at a slower pace, either way everyone is guaranteed to have fun and definitely burn some calories.
